    Another worry at mot time possibly coming

    Read this elsewhere

    Now that MOTs are computerised there are a number of upgrades due over the coming months / years. One will be a prompt on the computer at the start of the MOT to the effect of 'Does this car appear to have been modified from standard'. If the tester answers 'Yes' he will not be able to continue with the MOT without further checks with the DVLA/VOSA.

    What a joke!

    Hang on a min...

    Does this mean my stripes down the side will have to come off as they are not standard and hence a modifcation?

    Problem here is, the MOT is done by a government agency and is all computerised and has been for a few years now too. No wee backhanders.

    Of course we don't MOT until 4 years old, and I really doubt it'll be my problem by then.

    Surely this only affects those idiots who have modified their car without telling their insurance company. Insurance companys collate information with the DVLA and therefore will know which cars have void insurance policies.

    Those people deserve it IMO, void insurance = no insurance = uninsured driver in a crash.
