Black cab with CAB 881E

Weirdly, showing as taxed, but not MOT-ed since 2018?
The MoT before that was 16/9/2010 - perhaps it's a part-time cabbie? :P

Odd about the tax though, i've known DVLAs records to be slightly incorrect at times, my old Jeep Cherokee showed no MoT history at all when i first got it but suggested the MoT it had a few months into my ownership was the first one for many years. It now shows a normal, full history.
Cheers,
Dave

I've never known that.

He's spent all his money on road tax I reckon, nothing left for the MOT. It's high rate £555 a year.

He should probably cash in on the plate, to be honest!

Unless they've changed the rules Adrian, i think if you want to sell a registration on you either need to have the vehicle MoT'd or the reg on a retention certificate. Could be why he's not sold the plate on?
