Our car passed it’s first MOT. yippee.
Not that we ever thought it would fail mind, but given the grief we’ve had over the other bits of documentation relating to the car we don’t assume things any more. This time we booked the test before we got a reminder letter (it came in the next post!), and I’ve just checked on the t’internet that the piece of paper they’ve just given me at the dealership is on the government computer database (http://www.motinfo.gov.uk/). this means our car’s windscreen wipers work for one thing, which is good because I’ve had all the bits to replace them for the last month and never got around to it.
