It is being suggested from within Government that the British MOT should be every other year with the first MOT when the vehicle is 4 years old. If that happens vehicles in a similar condition to the Astra would be more likely to be found on British roads. It is no coincidence that European countries with an annual 'MOT' also have the lowest levels of fatalities and injuries on the roads.

What do you reckon to this?:shock:

Seen whilst on holiday in France, was being used daily.

They have a test every two years.

 

Frightening.
