The law catches up

Many people seem to hear stories of dodgy mot tests and testing stations, I seem to remember an investigation on the BBC several years ago. Fortunately there aren’t many to give honest testing stations a bad name.

The advent of computerisation has also helped in tracking down the cheats too, and ensuring they get punished, such as the following

During the trial the jury saw video evidence showing cars leaving the test bay after between seven and 11 minutes, on average.

A test ought to take in the region of 35 – 45 minutes

over a four month period, 2,463 vehicles were given an MOT at Mr Hussain’s garage yet none failed

The garage owner was found guilty and sentenced to 6 mths imprisonment.
