I absolutely hate myself sometimes.
I received a letter from the from the DVLA a couple of weeks ago reminding me that my tax was due, and that I needed an MOT certificate for the DD to continue.
"hah", I thought, "you bureaucrats have got it wrong again" and went off in search of my MOT certificate from October 2015.
I couldn't find it.
So I called the garage where I last had it done...and that's where the bomb dropped.
The last visit was in October 2014; it doesn't take an Einsteinesque ability to realise that it ran out in October 2015.
So, yesterday I spent all my free time (i'm on a course away from home) trying to find a garage that could fit me in.
Thankfully, all is passed ( I had a major service in july, so i would have known about anything dangerous ), but the stupidity of not having or knowing about a lack of MOT is really quite scary.
I am now making a note in my calendar!
