MOT changes

Come on chaps, why not use PMs and sort your problems out privately? We all enjoy the easy-going style of the Forum but nobody benefits from conflict. Regrettably, I can add nothing to the debate because I don't currently own a VHI.

If I understand the brave new world we are about to enter in May... If I could manage to get a new logbook from DVLA, could I just...
