You are correct jplant1981. The garages don't issue certificates these days as all MOT records are held electronically. It sounds like an oversight on the garage who renewed your MOT. I believe they can correct your new MOT to have the correct expiry date of +3weeks if you speak with them about it.

Don't take without giving in return
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
