No date given in what I've read but the following will apply soon, so worth getting your car ready!
Engine management lights must come on and go off correctly
Windscreens will now only fail if the damage affects visibility
Reversing lights will be tested on post-September 1 2009 vehicles
ABS will be tested along with transmission shafts
Brake fluid must be clear
Fuel tank filler necks must be sound
With classic windscreens possibly being quite expensive to replace, this is a sensible amendment for us. The brake fluid requirement and the fuel tank filler neck are sensible additions; the latter particularly of note for those of you with the 1980's Bluebirds (as has been highlighted here in the past)

I don't know if anyone has needed to get an MOT since the COVID epidemic but it may be worth noting that DVLA are giving a 6 month extension to MOT's to reduce infection. This will only be applied in the last 7 days before the MOT expires. The info is on the gov page (although you have to look for it). This allows you to re-tax your car and continue using it legally if you can't get it booked in for an MOT. You are of course still responsible for maintaining it in a roadworthy condition.
