“Not every vehicle fails its MOT.”
If the vehicles were going to pass you would be a fool to pay £50 for a backdoor MOT.July 17, 2020 at 8:49 pm #198620Graham BullockGuest
A 14-month jail term, suspended for two years with 30 days’ rehabilitation activity and 180 hours’ unpaid work, with £1,997 costs for giving a pass certificate for around 80 to 100 potentially damgerous vehicles.
What about the millions of potentially dangerous vehicles that DVSA gave pass certificates to without seeing those vehicles?
The judge said it was not about money, “It’s about the safety”, surely the same should apply for the DVSA.July 18, 2020 at 2:12 pm #198621john philipsGuest
JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF SNOWFLAKE JUSTICE ,THE CROWN NEEDS TO JAIL EVERYONE ONE OF THESE CROOKS OR ELSE THERES NO DETERRENTJuly 19, 2020 at 9:34 am #198624DavidGuest
While I agree that you must not test or issue test documentation to a vehicle when you are not medical fit and well, I also agree with Graham above and think that DVSA’s powers that be could have used better understanding of the current pandemic and not issued everyone with a 6 months mot extension. It is one man Vs Government here, but both parties have done the same thing, and that it potentially put dangerous vehicles on the roads.
I’ll be nothing would be said to the DfT or DVSA about that!
