  • This vehicles MOT expired on 16th March 2021. It also hasn't moved for 6 months. Legally a vehicle cannot be parked on the highway without tax, insurance and an MOT. As it has no MOT, and is well expired, it should be recovered/removed from the highway. It is an eyesore and needs to be removed.

  • Still there! Can someone please explain why this vehicle is allowed to park on a road without an MOT. It expired 2 months ago? And hasn't moved for 6 months. The guidance is clear - If a vehicle doesn't have a current MOT certificate, you can only drive it to or from a pre-arranged MOT appointment or to or from a pre-arranged repair appointment to have defects remedied that were discovered on a previous test. ... You will commit an offence if you park a vehicle without an MOT on the road.

  • No response to my comments. Are the police or council doing anything about vehicles illegally parked on a highway/carriageway without an MOT? Even if insured, any vehicle must pocesss a valid MOT for insurance to be valid. Please remove the abandoned vehicle and or inform the owner to remove it from the highway.
