The thing is,it feeds down through the years as well.We used to do nothing but MOT's around the 1st of August due to all the cars that were registered at the time becoming 3 years old,and then obvioiusly the following year and the following year etc,etc.

I'm glad that they moved away from Christmas and New Year,thats the only time of year I can have some decent time off!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
