No you do NOT have to take the Logbook or Old MOT certificate to the station..


1: Your vehicle is in for is 1st MOT (A calender month before 3 years from new) and you want to "claim your extra days on the Certificate..

2: Or if your old MOT runs out in less than a calender month then you can also "claim" your extra days.

Yes more and more MOT stations are becoming computerised, but the details that are entered are Reg No, Vin number and vehicle model type.. (This info is checked live with the DVLA) I guess in some cases the reg document would be helpful to identify the exact model type.

We have been computerised for 6 months now and I have never used the Old certificate or Log book to enter the vehicle details..
Why? Because as an MOT tester we have to physically check the VIN plate on the vehicle. Lets face it the Log book could be wrong!

So tell the MOT station they are talking out of there Bum!
