What would plod say if they pulled you over and you said you were taking it to an MoT test booked a couple of hundred miles away? I agree that it's legal but I'm sure they would then be all over you and crawling up the exhaust to get you for something.
Operating to the letter of the law and within the spirit of the law are not entirely the same thing. Has anyone here been stopped by Plod yet and did they get away with their pre-booked MOT that was 200 odd miles away?
I don't mean to sound negative or get all pedantic, I just don't want to see this beast lifted to a compound and all the hassle that is involved for you DW (even if it is a Vauxhall, they're all shit you know!).
If I can be of any more help* do let me know......
