    check the brakes general condition of pads and discs, tyres, exhaust for blowing, make sure all your lights work, wiper blades clear screen properly etc an mot in teeside is about 20 quid so fingers crossed thats all it will cost you

    The book MOT price is around £50, in addition to the checks listed above, I would generally make sure the car is clean inside and out (not that it will be an issue with your motor mate), I always think it's good to show the MOT man how much you look after your car.

    Interesting, because VOSA recently put up the price for a class IV vehicle test to £50.35 standard rate, so you're getting a steal there. Either that or he's not following VOSA guidelines in testing processes...
