Plus of course, there's the entire MOT/roadworthiness issue, at least with the current situation (in theory at least), the MOT certificate (if applicable) has to exist.

I don't think there's a perfect solution, but the current way ticks more boxes (and I would potentially be a 'winner' - look at the number of vehicles I have).


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
