Car Insurance

Q
My MOT failed on two accounts: 1 the windscreen needs replacing, 2 the garage needs to repair a head light. I arranged for wind screen to be replaced at my house - the company has rearranged it as heavy rain prevented them from doing the work. They cannot replace the windscreen now until after I have had the repair done at the garage. The problem is my insurance will have then expired and I donít think I can insure it without a valid MOT. This means I will have to drive it to the garage without a valid MOT and with out a valid insurance. What can i do - if stopped and asked for a document check am I covered. On reflection this means I will have to drive it to the garage for the repair, them bring it home to have the windscreen repaired then to the garage again to have it retested and drive home before I can renew the insurance. Is that OK
A
I am sure your insurers will reinsure you on the condition you are using it to get an mot you are not allowed to drive a car on public roads without valid insurance and you can be liable to prosecution

MOT Error
    Name: Russ Town: Newcastle
 
Q
I have recently bought a bike with a fesh MOT. A few days after, I checked the documents and noticed the mileage was incorrect on the certificate. They had the kilometre reading as miles.
I have tried a few times to get the MOT station to send a replacement certificate, but no joy. Is there anything else I can do to get it corrected?
A
There is no need to change the mileage. It will be clarified on the next test for the correct mileage. It is just a record and you will be able to trell it was off from the new and old certificate
