    Obviously the beta version still has glitches.

    My car isnt recognised here but is on the check mot status website.....

    https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-status

    Our last rv is there....failed in 2005 on number plate light.
    Passed every year since.

    Interesting to see what's happening to vehicles that have moved on to new owners.

    Our car was the same. I wonder if the testing garage have to report a fault that would result in a failure but then fix it and redo the test in the same session so that it passes ?

    Sadly our old VW camper appears to be no more, having failed its MoT a couple of years after we sold it and not having been re-tested.

    That's what our garage did with our car. The headlamp aim was a little high so they adjusted it to pass but had to record a failure initially.

    Ha! I just looked at my old Beetle........... I sold it in 1980 with 111,000 miles on the clock......

    MOT shows it last recorded MOT was in 2008 with 87,269 miles.... :eek::eek: And it has been painted PINK :eek::eek:

    At least I know it made it from 1967 until then (y)

    Looked at Mother in Laws van.
    During its time with previous owners, it had 5 years of advisories for perished tyres!
    Someone never cared about their own safety!

    I like the advisory on our previous van on its first test after being written off - "Nearside Front Vehicle structure has slight damage (6.1.A.1)".
    Considering it was hit at the offside rear and offside front that ain't bad :D
