Have you seen the New MOT regulations?


I have just looked at a new MOT which has just been done on Mrs zedbedees car because she wants to sell it with a 12 months MOT on it.


There are a number of advisories on it:

Chip in the windscreen

nsf tyre perished

osf tyre perished

nsf brake pipe corroded and covered in grease

osf brake pipe corroded and covered in grease

nsf brake disc worn pitted or scored but not seriously weakened

osf brake disc worn pitted or scored but not seriously weakened


As it was not clear to me what needed doing I rang the garage and went through each item with the MOT inspector who said ''none of this needed to be changed'',  but how would anyone be interested in buying a car with this on the MOT .


Would you buy a vehicle with this on the MOT certificate?


or is this the way vehicles will be bought & sold now?

I would say it would put off your average punter, those in the know wouldn't be bothered.

My disc have mild corrosion on however pulled well over the brake test so went down as an advisory.

Every car has worn discs unless there brand new down to laws of physics so think it's a bit of a micky take.

Loads of stuff have changed, here's a one for you if your tyres rotation was the wrong way its an advisory and you can drive away, now that seems dangerous to me.

Their clamping down on DPF removals also and rightly so, hate getting behind one of them with a face full of black crap
