Re: Can i drive after MOT fail or not?

But read the last lines ...

Driving a vehicle thatís failed

You can take your vehicle away if your MOT certificate is still valid.

If your MOT has run out you can take your vehicle to:

have the failed defects fixed
a pre-arranged MOT test appointment

In both cases, your vehicle still needs to meet the minimum standards of roadworthiness at all times or you can be fined.

Also you have been told of the faults so in the event of an accident your insurer may decline a claim saying you knowingly entered a public highway with a defective vehicle

Its a very grey area IMO

My super sonic sonar radar will help me!
