That dark time is upon us.....

Postby chillicamper » Sat Mar 16, 2013 8:19 am

I would like to ask everyone to pray to your gods, send some some good luck vibes and, if you wish to, sacrifice a small animal or may a relative ;) ....

yes...... on Tuesday next week its..............

Once more time for José the camper's MOT :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :o :o :o :roll: :roll: :roll:

Please keep him in your thoughts whilst the MOT man stabs at him with a screwdriver and pokes, prods and generally demeans him.

I'm not going to sleep for the next few nights until the pain is over ;) :lol:

¡Ay, caramba! :o

With all the love and attention you give him, I'm sure he'll pass with flying colours! :lol:

@Con - MOT is Ministry of Transport certificate of road worthiness. After a certain age, cars have to go through a series of tests each year to make sure they are safe to drive. It is illegal over here to take a car on the road that has failed its MOT test.

Sounds like the emissions tests people here have to go through, though seems more indepth.

I've been to an emissions test with Sharlene and her old car. The MOT is somewhat more in depth.

Here are more details.

Ahh, same here, but it's MVI, Motor Vehicle Inspection.

A lot more so. We get an emissions test too.

Many years ago, I used to watch Pimp my Ride despite having no interest in cars. None of the cars they picked up in that shod would have passed an MOT inspection.

A lot of people get advisory notes addressing potential problems but you can be failed for any number of things from
Headlight bulb alignment (no dazzling other drivers)
Tyre degradation
Seat belt failure (as in it doesn't clip into the seat belt holdy thing)
Owning a VW camper

If you fail, you correct everything and put it in again.
