    Default Crap! MOT out of date!

    Just realised that my MOT expired on the 9th so I have a bit of a problem...

    Going to try desperatly to find somewhere which will do it on the spot on a Sunday (unlikely)...

    Got to drive to work on Monday morning which is a bit of a pain as it's 200 miles away (currently staying with my girlfriend in Yorkshire) so there aren't really any alternatives.

    Anyone got any ideas for me?

    Alternatively, anyone know where I can get an MOT in or around Hull on Sunday without pre-booking?

    Just remember no MOT will flag Anpr if you pass one. Also it invalidates your insurance so should the worst happen you insurer can refuse to pay out.

    I guess you already knew that though, but a 200 mile drive in a car without a valid MOT well its your call..............................

    EDIT** or as mentioned your legally allowed to drive to pre-booked MOT test

    I wouldn't chance it. Think I would either ring in sick or book a day off.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I'm not going to chance it.

    Didn't know I could get caught by a camera... would that mean an automatic fine?

    If they really gave a toss about road safety, they'd send out reminder letters like they do for the tax.

    You sure? Obviously you need a valid MOT certificate to get a tax disc, but I didn't think it had anything to do with making insurance valid, or invalidating it.

    You do get a sticker to put on windscreen at time of issure with the date printed on it.
