No good to me, as mine ends mid September.

Dad got lucky though - January 2021 now for him.

Iím glad itís been brought forward, will keep all the dangerous cars off the road. I think anyone expecting this to last till October was being a bit naive, my other car was due in middle of July but got it tested last week. Many garages are up and running again so there isnít an excuse for not putting a car in.

About half of the MOT stations around here are still closed.

Maybe they will be reopening on the 4th July?

The chances are, the majority of people driving 'dangerous' cars don't even have an MOT, VED or insurance!

And don't care that they do either, as the fine for getting caught seems to be less than the cost of insurance alone !

My renewal date is 27 July! But It's booked in for later this week. I'm such a good boy!

I was hoping to get the airbag connectors under the driver's seat fixed during the dry weather last week, but alas, laziness beat me again..and that means a failure if not fixed asap. I also wanted to get the carpets steam cleaned whilst at it...and fit new air and cabin filters...and tidy it up! Is amazing how much junk can accumulate in a Tourer!!

But hey! The wheels look nice!
