Re: MOT time, what to look out for?

TBH an MOT is just an annual roadworthiness test, most of which you should check regularly in any case.

Check your lights all work as they should, the tyres have plenty of tread, there are no cracks to the glass & lights (or number plates), and there are no splits/leaks in the exhaust. Also check the wipers & washers work.

Other than that, there isn't much else you can check without getting the car up into the air.



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