Re: Legal to drive after failed MOT??

It's all very interesting, but in my old age I have found that everything is about money. The laws and by laws are all being designed to trap as many people as possible with a view to raise money to pay our inflated bureaucratic system. The law :-) allows you to drive to and from a test centre for the purpose of having a prebooked test when your current MOT has expired so I don't see why you cannot drive if you have a current MOT and have failed the next test before the expiry date.As far as I can determine there is no rule saying you must obtain your next MOT in advance,( wise to do so but not obligatory) If in law the MOT has a 1 year life then unless there is some clause which terminates that validity early then the expiry date is valid. Surprised we don't have any legal beagles on the forum to advise.
