Why bother with the ML5? the ENG 1 is more recgonised and the price is set by the MCA. Every time i have re validated certificates the medical has had to be within 3 months so the validity of of the ML5 is irrelevant.

the last ML5 i paid for was 45

Here's two good reasons:

1/. Any doctor (including your own doctor) can do the ML5, you have to go to a doctor on the MCA list for the ENG1 (and the ML5 usually is cheaper)
2/. ML5 lasts 5 years, ENG1 only 2

There are some small mismatches, and apart from some employers who require ENG1, there are some cases and conditions where it can be easier to get an ENG1 - but for most people, ML5 is cheaper and easier to get
