    Have you ever had a pass on a MOT that statistically your vehicle should have failed according to the computer or whatever?

    I have once on the emissions, examiner bent the rules and gave it a pass though

    I was assuming this was going to be the opposite situation where they fail you and hope you will pay for the service to get it through a re-test. I think the other way round would be too risky since they could cause someone to carry on driving a really unsafe car, I guess if it was still safe they might wink it through for you.

    I've never had one done, but I bought a car which had an 'MOT', but became apparent over the couple of months that I had it that it was a very dodgy MOT and the car really shouldn't have passed.

    Not personally, but I know a few people who have. It's always been little things, not unsafe just not up to standard, and based on trust that the person will get it fixed. Where I got for MOTs is good though as they will usually fix the problem and then pass it without charging for a retest, just the cost of fixing it. Very good as it saved me £30 this year when my car failed on one number plate bulb (which I'd checked the day before).
