    Default MOT question NI guys only

    guys what is the situaton with mot if your car failed. the car failed its 1st mot due to springs being broken so im going to fix them this week i hope. but can i drive the car anymore? i mean it drives fine but with no mot would it be legal (only for ni guys as our test is different to the gb guys as we have government run test centres a garage cant do it).

    Your only allowed to drive it back to test centre. Pain in the ass but the waiting times are very low atm so you should be sorted in a few days

    The rules on that are the same as over here, and that is that you are allowed to drive the car away to a place of repair only (no nipping to ASDA on the way back ). When the repairs are done, you are allowed to drive it back to a PRE-ARRANGED test, again, no detours. As long as the car is booked in for the test then you will be covered for your journey back to the test centre
