Well I decided it was time to get Tilly ready for tomorrows MOT so I started her up for the first time in 8 months

A couple of turns of the starter motor and she burst into life, and round to the back of the house for the preparation for the MOT which was a bucket of soapy water and a hose.....That's her now ready and I'll see what tomorrow brings.

I don't need to check wipers, seatbelts, indicators, brake pipes or brake cylinders for leaks, screen washers, emissions...In fact there is very little to check and I think I should get a cheaper MOT as it won't take much more than 30 minutes to get everything checked

Ask for a daytime only mot and they won't have to check the lights either! Although I think if they are fitted they need to work.
