I HAVE miscalculated and ended up with a UK registered car at my house in France the MOT for which runs out on March 1 whereas I did not plan to bring it to the UK until mid-April. What can I do? S.R.
A DVLA spokesman said that where an MOT has run out the owner is allowed to arrange an MOT test and drive to the centre for the test and then from the test centre to their registered UK home.
He confirmed this would include driving it from France to a pre-arranged test in the UK. You would therefore be best-advised to arrange to drive immediately for an MOT on your return – unless you reschedule an earlier return.
