Are you thinking the MOT certificate is bogus?
That's brilliant- thank you. I read it that the minimum needs to be 50% but mine is showing 47%. I know it's bogus, I took it to my new garage and they've effectively seized it off me for being dangerous I drove it 300 miles home! It was MOT'd 3 weeks ago, the lights don't work, wipers don't work, horn doesn't work, the bush thingys are knackered which directly impacts upon steering and he wouldn't let me take it because of the brakes. I'll see if I can upload a picture to show you the brake test to see if I've got it 100% before I add that to my evidence basket!
