NO cause if she gets pulled the police will know straight away, everything is on pesky databases these days. If, god forbid, she is involved in a accident, then her insurance is null and void.

you need to know someone that works at a post office mate thats the only way.

BUT....just declare car off road till MOT is done and dont drive it cos sodls law says she will get pulled over.

but to reiterate, without an MOT the car is not road legal. So breaking the law. all MOT's are now barcoded and stored in a national database which is linked to the PNC.

If she has an accident she is screwed.
