|04/07/2005 12:46:18||Richard||Now this is progress. Now we have the new DVLA MOT system I had a 1 & 1/2 hour long MOT! The car should have failed because one of the head lights was not projecting the correct pattern. That would have taken another 1/2 hour having to log on to the system, so he passed it. It cost £35 and should have been more like £45 at his normal rate.
I was told that most MOT stations are now passing cars with minor faults as it takes so long to fail a car and that garages are spending too much time on lower revenue MOT's.
