Who can ever remember when their car MOT is due? Apparently, not many of us!
A report by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has found that a third of drivers admitted to driving a car that did not have a valid MOT. Some of the drivers surveyed had used their un-roadworthy vehicles for six months or more.
The SMMT report showed that two-thirds of drivers who had driven without an MOT left having their car tested for up to a week after their MOT had expired. A quarter of drivers had left it a month, and almost 10% said they had left it six months. Forty percent of drivers aged 18-24 had continued to drive after their MOT expired.
