    It will be one year from the date of issue. So say you get it done 10/4/13 it will expire 10/4/14.
    You have the option to present it for a new MOT upto one month prior to expiry

    Not true.

    The OP's new MOT will be 10/5/14 if he gets it done (and it passes) on the 10/4/13. I did this in January even though my MOT ran out at the end of Feb. My new MOT runs until 23/2/14 but was done on 17/1/13.

    that is great news if the case then thanks

    it just the other way you lose a month out of it
    I'd rather get these kind of things done sooner rather than later

    The last thing you want is the pork chops stopping you because you got no MOT!

    Yep me too I always go a month before in case it doesn't pass then I've got 7 days to get a free retest or 30 days to get a bigger problem sorted (and have to pay again, though). It passed after a few easy things (wipers, handbrake tightened) so I had a 12.5 month MOT.

    The mrs just had her mot done two weeks before it expired and it has an expiry one year from the date of issue.

    Must be because she drives a pug...lol

    I'd check your MOT certificate very carefully if I were you. The computerised system will not allow what you've said to happen, unless something like the VIN or Reg number has been entered incorrectly and it's not picked up the previous expiry date.

    I had this when I took my Cordoba to a garage where I previously had my Ibiza MOT'd. Both cars used the same reg plate. The garage ended up issuing an mot with the VIN number of the scrapped Ibiza, but everything else from the Cordoba. I only spotted it as I checked the expiry date on the MOT and it hadn't been set as 12 months plus a couple of weeks. It was set as 12 months from the date of presentation which I knew was wrong.

    As the garage had cut and past the VIN number from my old Ibiza off their invoice system rather than entering the Cordy one from scratch, it didn't pick up the extra couple of weeks.

    I always go i mean every month before in situation it doesn't successfully pass then i've got just one week to get a 100 % free retest or 1 to 30 days to get a larger issue categorized and have to pay again, though . . . . .

    as said you get effectivly 13 months mot. 1 month of current and 12months of new mot.

    as for if it fails the mot and you can then fall back on the old mot, it dosnt work that way, if your car fails it fails, the old (current) mot then becomes void. so then in that case you would loose a month. just have it dont a week before mot time, and also no mot is a civil offence, if you were stopped as long as the car isnt hanging off the road and the police class it as "roadworthy" they just give you a 7 day producer, but then the other way round they can order you to have a retest if you have a mot and its not roadworthy, its mainly the traffic police that will give you a £30 fine and order you a 48 hour or could even be a 24 hour restest before its mot is invalid.

    May I confirm an MoT question. If my MoT runs out on the 11th of May, can I drive the car on the day it runs out? Can I drive on the 11th May?

    Anyone?
