Re: Legal to drive after failed MOT??

Your current MOT remains valid and you are perfectly legal driving your car. However, if any of the points it failed on mean that it is not roadworthy then you would be commiting a different offence, but you would not be driving without an MOT.

It is always worth MOTing your car as early as possible, your new MOT will automatically be dated for 12 months from the expiry of the old one now that details are computerised and if there is any work needed it means you can still drive it while getting the repairs done, subject to the proviso above.
