hmm unless you were selling it on and wanting to have the proof in your hand to show a buyer, then i can't think of why you would need proof of the MOT. It's is the 'system' that your car is MoT'd, so you can even buy a tax disc online, as long as you have your reg to hand.

any garage would be able to check your car in the same way you could re the mot.

You don't need it to get your next MOT done. You may need it if you get a producer from the police for any reason. You can get them reprinted for a £10 standard charge at any vosa MOT station.

I just bought a car and promptly managed to lose its MOT certificate. I've looked up the details online b/c I have the document reference number from the V5C registration certificate so I know when my current MOT expires. Am I legally obliged to actually have an official piece of paper though or will I need it in order to get my next MOT done? I now have a printout of the online DirectGov page and am wondering if that's all I need.
