Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Light van operators will be able to avoid the corn August surge of MoT testing by submitting their vehicies up a month early under new Department of Transport rules. Cars and ijght vans can now undergo their first MoT t up to one month before the third anniversary of their rec j tration, in theory, van operators could enjoy a 13-mor breathing space before the next test because under the n rules, the MoT certificate will not expire until the fou anniversary of the vehicle's registration. Transport minister Steven Norris says the deregulate move is aimed particularly at helping garages ease MoT I congestion around 1 August, but the Independent Garc Association, which represents more than half of the countr 1 8,000 MoT testers, says the concession is unnecessary. "Garages are well geared up for August and waiting I are unheard of now," says IGA director Hugh Roberts, "1 rule change is o very quirky decision."
