Default MOT, Check history online

You can check the mot history online with reg number and make

Good to see my old curvy sv is still going.. Still has my carbon co can on as it failed on the not for road use label and the horn was always temperamental (35822 miles )

TON found this the other day, been going through my car and bike history.

It seems no car I have owned is running any more and TONs old SV hasn't been MoT'd since 2012

Default MOT Check history onlie

My first SV (bought in 2000) is still going!
I sold it with a leaking tank and long list of impending problems in 2005.

It has done 4 miles in the last 12 months, and about 2,000 in the last 10 years!!!!

Default MOT, Check history online

Looking at the MOT fails and advisories on my Vectra I sold 5 years ago I did well to sell it when I did. It's only done 108,000, and I sold it at 4 years old and 80k miles because I felt it wasn't aging well and was about to start costing me money. By contrast the Toyota Avensis I replaced it with has 100,000 miles now, hasn't cost me a penny and still feels like new.
