Q - I have heard you
can apply for a daytime MOT, what is it?
A - It is not necessary to have lights or
a rear reflector fitted to be eligible for
a daytime MOT, except when it is foggy. You
should make it clear at the MOT test station
prior to the test and, providing the bike
passes, the certificate will be stamped 'daylight
Q - My CBR600 import
is due for its first MOT shortly but the headlight
points in the wrong direction?
A - Under the sale of goods act, the dealer
that sold it to you had a duty to ensure it
was fit for the purpose it was sold for, riding
on UK roads. They should rectify the problem
without cost to you. The same applies if you
bought the bike secondhand from a dealer but
not necessarily had it been a private sale.
Q - How much is a bike
A - The price is £23.80 (as at 1st
November 2006), a bike and sidecar is £30.40.
Prices are scheduled to be increased to £27.25
for bikes and £34.65 for three-wheelers,
effective 24th November 2006 (subject to change).
