It's especially handy when looking for a second hand car as you can see it's previous failures and advisories.

 

A colleague avoided a right lemon as the dealer "mislaid" the current MOT which listed loads of upcoming expensive advisories.

When I had my car MOT'd last month it took 4 days before mine appeared on the database.
Good site though.

Fascinating site, interesting to look back at previous mot's and see how many miles I covered each year, in my case it was 7k average.

Used this often but had never noticed you could check advisories and previous tests; very useful

 It's a good site but mot tester made a mistake and recorded the previous mot details onto my daughters mot, the details a fail and 281,802 miles as far as I'm aware can't be removed, her cars done 50k and never failed an mot, I guess anyone with a bit of common sense would see the previous history stacks up but still annoying.

Mileage can be changed at the garage you had it done at within a week of test being performed

 It was corrected Rich but it still is on the history, looks like it's had the clock wound back 230k :blink: . Also looks like it did 230k from previous mot. :facepalm:
