Re: Legal to drive after failed MOT??
VOSA and PC Plod may accept the current MOT cert is valid but if the vehicle has failed an MOT test and it is used (other than coming from or going to a test) your insurers may be bit miffed.
Insurance companies may try to invalidate any insurance should they become involved as you are responsible for telling the insurer of any material fact. Technically failure to disclose any material fact to your insurers invalidates your cover.
In all honesty it does appear to be a rather grey area and a definitive answer from an insurer may be helpful.
