- MOT – Is there a legal requirement to present your V5 document?
Not sure about legal but I've been asked for mine for motorbike MOTs. They double check their records against the V5 to check for mistakes (or ringers I guess).
One one of my bikes the chassis number and V5 didn't match! I was told it happens all the time. On mine you could see that a model number had been stuck in with the frame number, or missed out (can't remember now). It was obviously a cock up. Sure enough, getting the 'correct' V5 wasn't a problem.Posted 8 years agosunday wobblerMember
This will probably be because they are lazy and wont/can't be bothered to look for the chassis number on the car so will just use the one on the V5 for typing the info into the PC.
Take the old MOT certificate with you (if you have one, may be coming up to first MOT?) all the info they need is on there.
As allthepies ^^^^ says they can date the new MOT from the expiry of the old one. You can get your new MOT done up to 1 month in advance.Posted 8 years ago
