For what it's worth here is my opinion.

The MOT test is a farce as it stands at the momment. As lagdti stated an MOT is only a VERY BASIC SAFETY INSPECTION. I mean an MOT inspector has a job to do, and most do so to a very high standard. But they are limited to what can be done to a car whilst it is being MOT'd. IMHO the MOT should be a lot more involved and be done every 6 months. I have seen many complete death traps being driven around with 12 months MOT. Many people beleive that because they have 12 months MOT that there car is safe for the next year. THIS IS NOT THE CASE. Sorry to rant but this is my opinion. Also waiting 5 years before a new cars gets it's first MOT is ludicrous, I agree that even new cars should be subjected to a full examination.

By the way no I'm not an MOT inspector
