Ban Ed as we don't have to do that every year. Ours is due each time the registration is changed.

Ban Roger so if you kept your car for 15 years it wouldn't need to be MOT ed until you sold it.

Ban Roger as. I like the idea. But who has to get the car " fit enough " to pass the MOT. I would say the owner who wants to sell the verhcal.

Ban Ed as we could sell "certified" or "as is", depending on how much value we place on it. It's actually the new owner's responsibility if they want to put it on the road.

Ban Roger as thats a good way of doing it.
Over here if we adopted the idea of " ownership mot" validation.
Should we want to sell the verhcal. No doubt the onus would be put on the verhcal seller to make sure it is road worthy to sell on. But I do like your idea of MOT though. Great if you have an old verhcal.

Ban Ed as your annual MOT at least means that you are not likely to be hit by someone driving a piece of junk that shouldn't be on the road.

Ban Ed as commercial vehicles on the other hand must have semi-annual MOT (Safety cert, here) so school buses, dump trucks, etc get certified twice a year.

Ban Roger as twice a year seems a bit extreme

Ban Ed as we still have far too many unsafe trucks (Lorries) causing accidents here, even with all the certs done.

Ban Ed as the Provincial rules are tight, but cross province truckers sneak in from Quebec with their loosely regulated vehicles. We also have a major truck driver training school here which is run and tested by an immigrant population which I shall leave unnamed for now, who seem to write their own rules.

Ban Roger as we have MOT inspectors who do a surprise visit to an MOT garage and go through their past records and watch the MOT being done and make sure everything is in order. I was having my car MOT this year when the inspector turned up. He was, as to be expected very thorough.

Ban Ed as we have roadside inspection stations for trucks on major roadways. The problem is that they're open sporadically and when they are open, they only inspect about one in every dozen or so trucks.

Ban Roger as we do too. But ours have a weighbridge to see if the verhcal is over weight as well as road worthy.

Ban Ed as weighbridge sounds funny here. Ours are upgraded to electronic computerised scanners that weigh each wheel for overload and then combine for each axle overload and then finally totals for licensed weight of each truck.
