No Lighting whatsoever

Postby lancepar » 20 Jan 2015, 12:22

Hi All,
This is not a my lights don't work thread :o .

Firstly I am aware of the requirement for getting a so called Daytime MOT in the UK.
But despite my searches regarding a newish vehicle, i.e. one not requiring a MOT, I have been unsuccessful.

So can anyone point me in the right direction from official sources, not from the bloke down the Pub? :)

Cheers
Lance

I'm not in a pub, not even on the British Isles for that matter, but found an interesting thread:

I have not read the above article from Visordown but why don't you pop down to a garage that does bike MOT's, while your bike does not need an MOT they will have the most up to date information from the VDSA (old VOSA).

Brian,
I'll pop in my local MOT centre and let you know how I get on.

Should clear this up. Cheers

Thanks for the replies............but as I said, this vehicle will not require a MOT until it is 3 years old. Neither is it an ambulance, taxi or PSV which require a MOT on their 1st birthday (I didn't know that).

Maybe a question for the DVSA then.

Cheers
