Incidentally, mathematical signs > means greater than < means less than
(an easy way to remember is <ess the < being like a slanted L ).

When you say dud MOT do you mean the tester didnt inspect the car properly ?
I know! I didn't expect it to be another clio situation
Thank you- I'm awful with maths I think what's happened is the test garage and the sale garage are two seperate people so the test garage has printed out a failure as guidance for the sale garage to repair but attached a pass to it at the same time. The sale garage obviously haven't repaired it! But I know the MOT shouldn't be valid- the problems (as anything but a mechanically minded girl) I know of are: horn not working, back wiper not working, brakes not effective, front light not working, and an INCH (literally) play in the steering. I literally took it to my garage and he took the keys and told me I couldn't have it back because it could kill me
