Hi can you answer me a question please guys?
One of my cars ran out of MoT yesterday so was in for its test and it failed on a tyre, i had a tyre put on but didnt get chance to get it re-tested and therefore a certificate issued. I am getting it redone on monday, but is it legal to drive still? Its nice and sunny so fancied going out in it but it hasnt got a valid test cert but I have complied with the fail advice and got it fixed so its just a matter of presenting it on monday.

Cheers

No, it's illegal to drive a car without an MOT unless it is on its way to be tested and the test is pre-booked. Even though your tyre may be fixed it does not mean the car is allowed to be driven on the road.

If the MOT has expired you cannot drive it. If it failed but the current MOT is still in date and the car is roadworthy then you can drive it.

Nope you would be breaking the law..

Use one of your other cars instead. (if it's MOT'd, taxed and insured..)

I've seen it said that as soon as you fail an mot the old certificate becomes invalid as the car is no longer roadworthy. Never bothered to investigate that claim though.
