MOT query

Car up for mot in the morning.
Tore house upside down, cant find v5c form

Had mine last week in Balmoral and they didn't ask for any paperwork

So long as you get there on time and get into the right lane you're grand. Never had any paperwork

I have never been asked for any paperwork. Turn up at the right time in the right lane and the only thing you'll get asked for is your mileage.

Dont make the same mistake I made. Booked the car into Armagh a few years ago for the MOT. Was turned down on "rusty brake pipes". Brought it back to the mechanic..he said he couldnt find anything wrong with it. Put it through the retest in Newry without doing anything to it. Sailed through. The lad in the Newry MOT centre looked at me wild..said there was nothing wrong with the pipes..he couldnt believe it. I thought tyhe original decision might have had something to do with the copy of the Irish News and the GAA jacket on the back seat but I couldnt possibly comment :-\ :-\ :-\ :-\


BTW I agree with BC1 and the others...no paperwork needed.

Also i have never taken car for MOT car wash before taking it to Test centre.  As long as it isnt completely covered in dirt that MOT wash is a complete waste of money IMO
Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience

I never have either but I know that in the country areas the amount of shite that accumulates on the undercarriage can make it very difficult for the examiner to see. It could make the decision for them on a touch and go and a mechanic who worked as an examiner before told me that

I was told before if I came back with the undercarriage dirty they'd send me home as they can't see splits in the brake pipes. The examiner had to clean them with a cloth.  :-[

Id the opposite happen, years ago when the MOT testers were on strike and there was a back backlog I'd to go to Downpatrick to get the car MOT'd, usual, never did a thing to the car beforehand, let them fail it first before doing any work...

got there and was chatting to the examinier and he noticed the hurls and kit bags in the boot from the team... GAA man he was and the car was failing in a couple of minor points, he let me know what they were  and told me the wheel is off the hub and made sure I put the wheel on properly and set me on my way!!!
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

No paperwork required.

Get there early. If the car is a few years old not worth your while doing anything to it - see what they fail it on first.

Was in Boucher Road a few Saturdays ago. Brought everything needed, in terms of  paperwork, wasn't asked for anything. The day you don't bring it will be the day you'll be asked for it!

When Ireland is united you will have to bring your paperwork, and get a proper test of the yoke too.
