MOT question

My wifes Laguna run out of MOT yesterday. On top of that shes managed to snap the bonnet release cable.

2 questions. Can I still get it to pass an MOT before I get the cable fixed? Plus any ideas on rough cost of getting new cable in it?

Re: MOT question

Im not sure of the cost of the cable but the MOT inspector would need to be inside the bonnet to check for corrosion around the suspension etc.

Re: MOT question

Here is Northern Ireland the system is government run and an MOT can only be obtained at official testing stations. The tester ALWAYS opens the bonnet here. I'm pretty sure it would be an instant fail if he can't
