THE MOT SAFETY NET

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR SHOUT -

We’re prob­a­bly not as good as we like to think we are. I have been fol­low­ing the MOT or not to MOT de­bate in PC. My cars are not yet el­i­gi­ble for ex­emp­tion but if they were I would put them in for in­spec­tion any­way.

I do most of the main­te­nance and re­pair work on my cars, and I think I’m pretty good at it. But I know I can and have made mis­takes. I haven’t even touched on what the rav­ages of time, mois­ture and, more re­cently, the stress on metal and plas­tics by driv­ing over a pot­hole can cause.

So, isn’t it a good idea to have that du­pli­cate in­spec­tion car­ried out by some­one in­de­pen­dent of your own ego? After all, your life and those of your loved ones and in­no­cents are at stake. I think it’s worth the 50-odd quid a year to have that re­as­sur­ance.

Keep up the good work on a bril­liant mag­a­zine.

John Jenk­ins, Bat­tle
