    Default Where's Your Motor Been

    You can now find out where your old motor has been before it met you:

    MoT History Check - DVLA

    DVLA's MoT history checker now lists the testing stations where past MoTs were undertaken. Not much use for those in Germany, Ireland or that have more money than sense.

    That's been available for yonks. A friend of mine was going to buy a car off eBay until I directed her to that site and told her to look through all the advisories and failures the car had had. The mileage was also variable...

    But not with details of the MoT test station. That only surfaced yesterday.

    Good old days. My grandfather used to get his driving license renewal signed off by his doctor. Supposedly he used to take a bottle of very nice Scotch with him and return without it.

    Glad you now recognise that Northern Ireland is a part of Ireland.

    You can only get results for tests done in England, Scotland or Wales since 2005.

    Last time I was in Farnworth, it hadn't changed much.

    I thought we all had new cars, and swapped them before they needed an MOT?
