    Good that it also highlights things to watch out for... eg brake pads wearing etc

    Previous green MOT's would also come with an orange 'advisory' sheet if needed. ;)

    I think they look very disappointing compared with the older smaller certificate.

    They are also lacking the embossed stamp of the garage which I thought cheapens the whole look and gives it a somewhat "dodgy",forged look?
    If I purchased a car from a private buyer I wouldn't feel happy just receiving
    what looks like a simple photocopy or document created in MS word.

    But you can easily check its veracity online, hence no longer the need for a watermarked/ embossed sheet

    Just set your birthday on the forum info to your MOT date.

    So when everyone starts wishing you a Happy Birthday (and you know its not) you'll know its time to get down to your garage..
