Quite right in my opinion - there's enough danger out there on the roads without increasing the risk to all - cars without MOT's have no place on the roads - full stop (unless, of course they are heading directly for the MOT - just in case anyone was about to correct me on that point ).

When I bought my 28 year old Corolla Coupe, I had it transported from London to Larbert (around 400 miles) for around 300. If you look online, or in the back of Classic Car Magazines, you will find plenty of choice (and hopefully a bit of competition on price) to assist you.

Hope that helps.


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