The survey also found that five per cent of 18- to 24-year-olds have delayed their MoT test by more than six months. A further 16 per cent are holding off doing repairs. director Matt Tumbridge said: “Motorists have been hit hard by spiralling motoring costs and it is very worrying that so many are struggling to pay for repairs to their vehicles.”
