Re: mot extensions

I've just realised that the OP has actually taxed their car. They way I understood the situation, that shouldn't be able to happen as the MOT expiry date of October is well before the March 31st start date for MOT extensions. I'm pretty sure that they still won't be able to get an MOT though as test...

Re: mot extensions

You don't need tax to drive to and from a pre booked MOT test, so long as you go straight there and home immediately afterwards. That's definitely true for having an expired MOT, but the way I understand it, it's a grey area as far as tax is concerned. I've never found anything official online stat...

The sticker on the back says 1.6 GL
The boot is a different colour from the rest of the car though, obviously it's been replaced. The car is actually a 1.6 LS.

Re: CCI National Day 2020

Some local organisers have cancelled July already which may well be a bit early imo. It's the same in this part of the world too. Perhaps if the organisers cancel early they just forfeit a deposit for the ground rental, whereas if they chance leaving it until later and still have to cancel they mig...

Re: CCI National Day 2020

The advert on the back page of the club magazine says that there might be a "possible cancellation". I suggest that a cancellation is, sadly, highly likely. That's a shame as it is a great event to get together with like-minded Capri folk.

Cheers Andrew as you have a sit down lawn mower I guess you have a grass seed tractor :lol:
I don't use the ride-on much these days as I've bought a self-propelled mulching mower that I tend to use more.
It saves a lot of work not collecting the clippings!

Can you guys not get sticker paper vinyl stuff ( cant think of the correct name ) that goes in your printer so you can print out your own images . Signwriters use it heaps
That is the plan, but I wish to know the size of the genuine stickers so they can be printed the correct size.

Re: MOT's extended for six months

My question is can you get the new mot done ANY time in the extended six months or do you have to wait to be told the earliest you can do it which will be at the other end of the extended period ??? Nick, No, you don't have to wait, you can MOT a car any time you like (except after 5 as the garages...
