Missing MOT history when buying a car.

Looking at buying another car and seen one that we like. Everything looks good but checking the free GOV MOT checker, the only MOT's showing are from Feb this year and it has just had another one done this month(I assume just to give it a full 12 month for peace of mind) Should I be wary?

It's on a 52 plate, 76k, 11 service stamps, timing chain replaced etc.

Assuming it has a current MOT, I can't imagine there's anything to worry about.

Cheers Stuart, may contact seller and ask if he has any idea why.

Nothing to do with private plate. But could have been exported and imported or crashed and repaired a few years later

could have been on a private number plate, ideally look at older mot certificates.
