MOT failed

Post by phoebebus on Mon 15 Jun - 1:26

Took the bus for MOT on Saturday and she failed on a bit of welding needed on rear suspension mount and worn rear ball joint.Luckily that top man Rob at local v dubs has fitted the van in this week so will have MOT back on Saturday.
I currently have an MOT certificate till 20/06 does anybody know if the failure makes this one void or am i still legally allowed to drive the bus. :

surley if you still have a valid mot certificate then you are still legal..
it is up to ther owner if they want to retest it before the expiry date...
which in turn gives you time to sort out the work and remain legal..

I thought that way but surely the van will now show up as a MOT failure on the central database.

I don't think they'll process it on the main frame until it's passed the MOT. If you fail to get an MOT before the expiry date then it would show up as not having an MOT. I think!

Apparently not - ANPR still reads it as having a valid MOT.

But depending on the failure if it is shown to be dangerous do you want to be driving it? One school of thought says "No" and another says "Well, I drove it up till that date"
