dm was caught doing 50 in a 70. and mot ran out on 21st. he has to produce docs but wasn't given anything other than the slip to produce docs. does this mean he will get pen points and fine or not.

50 in a 70?

misdee Tue 27-Feb-07 22:58:54

do you mean 70 in a 50.

About 12 years ago, I got caught doing 95 mph on the M62.

5 points. £60 quid. A hard lesson learnt.

He'll probably get a fine and points for speeding and then some penalty for driving with no MOT.

mots are all computerised now and they will know it wasn't mot-ed at the time. sorry

mumofelise Tue 27-Feb-07 23:06:13

The only time you are allowed to drive without an MOT is if you are on the way to a pre-booked test, or on the way to get it fixed so it will pass the test.
They will know when he produces documents that he did not have an MOT, and at that point I think it is up to the officer who stopped him as to whether it is taken further and the MOT thing is also prosecuted.

this could be his job for a first offence.

stay positive, they may well look at it as not worth the paperwork as the vehicle is proven roadworthy. and they're not all computerised now, depends on the garage and whether or not they have the new system.

Aren't you allowed 14 days grace to get an MOT?
