Sorry, it is also blocked to me because I will not turn off my ad-blocker. Are you getting the same.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

It is basically a forum such as this for Police Officers. They discuss distance in the context of driving to a pre booked MOT. Plenty of opinion but as you would expect nothing definitive as there is no such thing in law.
In the end all they can do is report you for no MOT and then it is up to the court to decide if the lawful exemption in the 'The Motor Vehicle (Tests) Regulations' of driving to a pre booked MOT is met. [They can of course report you for an unroadworthy vehicle if they find something they do not like but they can do that at any time].

I wonder how 'reasonable distance' has crept into the general impression of the law?

Will the van still be insured while in France if it has no MOT?

Will any vehicle still be insured if it does not have an MOT? I guess it must be possible because if you were to ask the Police they would say that to take a non MOT'd vehicle for a test it must be insured

In the end it will depend upon the policy T&C's.

Jean, I don't know the answer to that. I am afraid that to fit in with family requirements I am putting my head in the sand. I am not comfortable with it but the alternative is to go from Barcelona to UK on 20 July and back to the south of France by 23 July 😳😳😳😳

Fingers crossed.

Without knowing the circumstances my comments may cause negative response from some members. However why I ask. if you are going to be away for some time does one not have a NEW mot giving yourselves 12 months to sort out timing for the next one. If you are a full timer or just having a trip.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

No negative response from me Cabby. A perfectly reasonable question. I fully intended to return to UK in April/May. Then my son, who lives in Barcelona, asked if we could help out with child care until 20 July. He doesn't usually ask, and as there are extenuating circumstances, we agreed. We already had a family holiday in south of France arranged for 23 July ( we were going to UK April/May then back to France in July) , my daughter and her family flying in from UK, my mother flying in also and my son and his family motoring up from Spain - hence my very small window from 20-23 July. We usually are sticklers for things like MOTs but sometimes 'a man has to do what a man has to do' - or woman in my case. ��

Thanks for all helpful responses. I haven't been on line for a few days.
