Will I get into trouble for this?Watch
If something was to happen whilst on the motorway and the car stopped working can I go to jail?
If one of the faults appeared on the mot failed certificate is the cause of the car breaking down?
I'm not really meant to be driving it.
If your car fails its MOT you can only continue to drive it if the previous year's MOT is still valid - which might occur if you submitted the car for its test two weeks early. You can still drive it away from the testing centre or garage if no 'dangerous' problems were identified during the MOT. You will otherwise need to get the necessary repairs carried out.
If you are driving under other circumstances without a valid MOT, you could be looking at £1000 fine and having the car impounded. Which begs the question of what were you doing driving having failed the MOT? And why are you even getting behind the wheel if you don't understand the rules of roadworthiness? Legally you could be potentially paying more than the cost of repairs and not being able to drive if the car is taken away.
Yes it's true its not worth the risk.
