Mot on bike?

My motorbike has failed the mot test on the 7th of this month for a faulty front light. It is due for a re test in a weeks time. How much trouble will I get in if I get stopped by the police for driving on the road

    It isn't the MOT that's your problem. Using a vehicle that failed the MOT automatically voids the insurance unless you're driving directly to a pre-appointed MOT test.

    You'll be done for riding uninsured. That's a whole different ball game and a LOT of trouble.

    If you haven't repaired the light, you'll get a ticket for faulty equipment.

    "how much trouble" ?

    The same as the answer to this question: How long is a piece of string.

    You will get a "fix-it" ticket which will go away when the problem is fixed.

    What matters is has the old MOT expired or not? If there is an MOT cert in place you won't be picked up by ANPR cameras. If, by chance, you are stopped, they will not proceed against you especially if you can explain that an appointment is made.

      Yes the mot is expired
