Bentley owner fails to renew MOT

An MOT test is required for most vehicles over three years old, is a legal requirement and can also invalidate motor insurance.

Failure to ensure your vehicle’s MOT can result in penalties such as a fixed penalty notice from the police or a court fine. Recently, a high-profile motoring lawyer, famed for successful defences of celebrities, was pulled over by police as the MOT on the Bentley car he was driving had expired.

As the responsibility for ensuring the MOT certificate had not expired was his, he was required to pay a fine. For more about the story in The Daily Mail see here.
The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) provides a text reminder service on their own website. This, however, incurs a fee, whereas The Good Garage Scheme provides a text AND e-mail reminder service free of charge.

Customers can gain a reminder by either text message, e-mail or both.
