MOT expires 14/03/2011 - does this mean I can drive on this day but not after, or just before?

As long as you pre-book an appointment to get it MOT'd you can drive it on the way to the garage without an MOT at anytime after Monday. but you must be driving it to the garage to a pre-booked appointment.

Your not wrong. Anything that expires on a certain date is valid until the end of that date, like you said it would be midnight of the date it expires.

It will fail, If they can't fail it they'll break something and then fail it.

I would avoid a garage MOT at all costs!

Like shauneco says, they stand to gain work by failing it while a dedicated MOT service centre gain nothing by failing you and actually give away free work as most of them offer a free retest within a week.

The half price saving you make could add up to a lot more if they tell you a load of rubbish to get you to pay for work that doesn't need doing.

You can drive it on the day it expires.

In future, get it MOT'd up to a month before the certificate expires, and you will get 12 months from the expiry of the original ticket.
