Re: Legal to drive after failed MOT??

It's legal to drive if you have a current MOT certificate. However as others have pointed out you could still be caught IF any of the failures on the new MOT made the car unroadworthy. Many failures relate to emissions and other minor points which do not compromise roadworthyness. A grey area indeed, as for ANPR I'm not sure, I was pulled over on the M1 when my MOT was 6 days out of date, could have been a routine check as all else was in date but the motorcycle cop knew the date of my MOT which might have been a chance revelation when he pulled up all my other details.
