Had my 9th MOT done this morning, passed again with no advisories! :thumbsup:

Embarrassingly, with lockdown affecting going out, just 700 miles done since the last one. :sad:

Must try harder!! :laughing:

Congrats  :thumbsup:

Out of interest...was there any issue with the idle? When mine was done last year, the idle was around 750rpm but wasn`t quite steady enough to stay in the green box on their screen. That was a fail!!! When I had the de-cat replaced with a sport cat (emissions were 7 times the allowed levels) I took it back for re-test and luckily they didn`t check the idle so it passed. Not sure what will happen this time.....if I`ve still got it.

That's good news Gareth, always good to get another clean sweep with the MOT! I've got my 9th coming up in a couple of months, hoping to keep my record clean too... 👍🏻😎

Nice to get it over for another year as a matter of interest did you have information on your overall braking efficiency?

Thanks must be additional info provided by my local testing station. Never had the detail print out of the braking part of the test before, also on my 9th mot.
