Miss your MOT and you could face a £1,000 fine
Is your car due an MOT? Make a note of the date and avoid paying out an unnecessary fine. More than 335,000 motorists risk a £1,000 fine every month by missing the deadline for their car's MOT, reckons the car-service booking provider MOT Angel. Being timely with your MOT also means avoiding invalid insurance policies and spiralling repair bills.
