The majority of us understand the basics of tyre safety, so why do we wait until our MOT to be told we need new tyres? According to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), between April 2015 and March 2016, over 2 million class 3 and 4 vehicles (cars and light vans up to 3,000 kg) failed their MOT due to defective tyres.
