General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
As I, kind of, said above, if a car is 'logged on' for it's test and, during the test, the tester finds one indicator bulb out and, let's say, a number-plate bulb out, he must fail the car. He's not supposed to spend time fixing the bulbs, simple as it is, whilst the test is live. The car must fail.
The repair can be done by who-ever, and a re-test must be done.
If you take a car for a test and you say, "fix anything it fails on", it still has to fail if there's any faults found and you have to be issued with the fail notice with any faults listed.
If an MoT tester gets 'a visit' from the minisrty inspector and is found doing a repair while the car is logged on, he's in bother!
They wait outside the garage and they can pick up what's logged on inside. If they enter the garage and a logged on car isn't present, they'll be shut down.
Back to subject, a 40 year old car doesn't need an MoT as old cars are exempt. How daft is that, eh.?
