DRIVERS in Brighton are among the top cities in the UK to have driven the longest without a valid MOT
New research from Comparethemarket.com has revealed that up to one in ten UK drivers have been driving their car without a valid MOT certificate.
The study highlights the most common reasons why people forget to book their MOT, how long people have driven without a MOT and whether drivers are aware of the possible consequences.
Although 67 per cent of British drivers say they are ‘fully aware’ of the consequences of driving without an MOT, Britons who admit to driving without a valid permit also do so an average of six weeks before realizing it.
The research found that Brighton motorists who drove without an MOT did so for an average of five weeks. The 10th longest time in the country.
It has been found that drivers from Liverpool who have driven without MOT do so for an average of nine weeks before noticing or being made aware of it, followed by drivers in Cardiff and Leeds who drive eight weeks before noticing.
Forgetting the expiry date was the number one reason Brits drove without a valid MOT certificate.
This was followed by simply forgetting to check when it expired.
