Kernow I didn't mean to imply the every MoT fail was necessarily "unroadworthy", and I know of cases where a vehicle has failed at one test centre and passed at another. But I did think it was an offense to use a vehicle that didn't meet the emission requirements: http://www.dft.gov.uk/consultations/...cement?page=15

If you have a bit of paper it just shows it passed ' on that day'. You can still have no tread on tyres etc that make it illegal to drive on the road.

If your paperwork is valid ( in date) and all else is OK - you'll be fine even if you have ' failed' . Thats why they allow you a month to get it tested & passed before the old one runs out . This can give you a 13 month MOT !

Yes agree it is, but the 2 emmision tests are different, an Mot failure emmision test is far stricter than a roadside (construction and use) check.

Well all I can say is that when my Reg and log book ref number was entered into the VOSA website it came up with various pieces of info about my car which varified that it has a current MOT which runs out on the 23rd, dispite my car failing last Friday. There was a foot note however that confirmed that the car had, had a recent MOT which was a failier or an aborted MOT.

This is the info the Police would have access to and is good enough for me
