MOT horror stories – keep them coming!

We all love a good horror story, and when it comes to MOT horrors they’re something we can use in our lobbying efforts, too.

If you’ve read the latest issues of CAT then you’ll know we’re in full support of any efforts to stop impending changes to the MOT test schedule.

One business I’ve spoken to recently  said that while a 4-2-2 system might save customers money in the short term, the government will face rising costs as the numbers of accidents and even deaths on UK roads spirals out of control.

The IAAF is calling for evidence of MOT ‘horror stories’ to use in its lobbying efforts with MPs, and CAT wants to help.

We need your pictures of MOT horrors, and your stories of the state of some of the vehicles presented for MOT tests.

CAT has been getting a steady flow of your pictures, but we always need more so keep them coming!

Here’s one sent in by ABP Motorsport Manager Chris Meredith.

  1. How long had they been driving around like THAT Darren?!!

    So, great news announced this morning that Justine Greening MP is dropping plans to reduce MOT testing frequency….
    The view to decrease the frequency of MOTs would have been both costly and dangerous; and Woodley Autos welcome the Government’s rational conclusion this morning to abandon the idea.

    Tim Englefield, general manager Woodley Autos
    we are all very pleased/relieved at WoodleyAutos it has to be said!
