    Wife Forgot her MOT

    Bought our used Astra G in August from the Main Agents with 1 months free insurance, (they carried out a Plate change) gave us 1 years warrenty, 1 years Tax, a full tank of fuel and so i thought 1 years MOT.

    On Sunday night i decided to look at the paperwork only to find out that the MOT ran out on Jan 29th.

    Book it in on the Monday, passed without any problems, now i know that it's our fault for not checking before, but we thought we had a years MOT when we bought the car.

    Wouldn't you think that because all vehicle MOT's are on a national registered now and they send you out a TAX reminder, that they would send you out an MOT reminder as-well?

    thats why MOT certificates have that sticker with the dates on so you can stick it in the window... I've got mine stuck to a bit of card that lives in the sunvisor, so whenever I pull the visor down I see it and am reminded...

    Well thats just the same as the road tax really, all you have to do is look in the corner of the windscreen.

    I also think we should get reminders, even tho I anit forgot it yet.
