Insurers: oh yeah, I can imagine this - you insurance Ts&Cs could still stipulate an MOT even if the gov doesn't need it :frown:Yes... I put this link there as I reckon it is in some ways a very big change.
Regards 40+ year classic bikes/cars best check with insurer as the bikers gossip speculated in recent years that insurers may seek higher premiums for classic bikes of 40+ years old that have not been put through an MOT test.
I wonder what interpretations may be used to say something is dangerous to prevent driving your car home. As we are aware in theory any car could be temporarily banned from the road for a couple of days or so as dangerous if there is an MOT test last thing in the afternoon or may be last thing Friday afternoon and a wiper or light/headlight breaks during the test and the garage does not have the time or parts to hand to fix it.
low loader or suspended tow to a place of repair (depending on the fail)What would happen if you took your car to a council mot station (that has no facility for repair work) and it failed with a ‘dangerous ‘ fail. Can’t be driven but can’t be repaired where it is?
Meanwhile, you have to walk home. Just who pays for the tow?low loader or suspended tow to a place of repair (depending on the fail)
Would you please clarify what you mean here, as I can find no reference to any change to being able to preserve the expiry date of the old certificate by taking a vehicle for a test up to one month in advance......also no more early mot testing .....
