I'm not sure on this, that is a very good question, however you need to concentrate on getting your licence back first, but I would of thought the MOT suspension is for vehicles that are presently MOTd, your vehicle by the sounds of it has been standing for a while.....but again the government are stating that some garages are to remain open....maybe if you buy a car with MOT and this runs out then the suspension will kick in.....

My understanding is that if your car is due an MOT from 30th March then it can be deferred for 6 months. So if your MOT has already expired then the exemption does not cover your vehicle.

My understanding of this procedure is that a car that has been off the road for a while with an expired MOT will have to stay off the road. The temporary procedure is for cars that will have a current valid MOT coming to an end after the 30th March.

It depends really if your classed as a HRO, if you blew over 87.5 at the station then yes you will be required to attend a DVLA medical and they will write out to your GP to see if there are any alcohol/mental health issues or drug related problems, again you'll need a CDT level to be in the green zone for a licence to be issued,or for drugs you will need to give a urine sample to show there are no drugs present(you may need 1/2 of these medicals) and obviously with the corona outbreak there's going to be some disruption......if you are a HRO then getting your licence back will take months as you have to satisfy DVLA that you are no longer a threat to our roads and that you are medically fit to drive such a vehicle and the only way you can do this is through your GP and paperwork through the DVLA and your GP ......and of course your DG10 then you will be investigated through your GP and you will have to provide medical evidence 6/12 months through your GP to show DVLA that you are clean and drug free.....
