RAC spokesman Rod Dennis said: “There are clear cost and efficiency benefits for the Government in encouraging motorists and the motor industry to do more online. But this latest IT glitch will be starting to undermine motorists’ confidence in the systems the Government is so eager to roll out.

“The problems are causing staff at some garages a real headache, with motorists having to make do with hand-written MOT certificates until the problem has been solved.

“Our advice to motorists is to check the date of their next MOT – and not leave getting their car to the garage until the very last minute.”
