MOT time for a newish machine

This week I took the Alp for its first MoT test. As I'd expected there were no problems and I got my piece of paper. Nowadays the real data is on the Ministry's computer and the 'certificate' is little more than a receipt. This does mean that you can renew your tax disc online as they have MoT data and insurance data. There is now a database of vehicle insurance so the certificate of insurance isn't all that important either. Whether you see this as progress that saves a trip to the post office or a worrying development of 'Big Brother' is up to you.
