I simply do not understand the problems you are having. My last one was almost fitted the next day !!
Maybe I used up the last one in Europe or something ! Oooooops.

You speak as though not having an MOT keeps you from driving the car.....

I took it in for them to assess the windscreen i told them the story and the fact that the new one is on its way as we speak. They said if it had of been less the 50% of the screen then they would consider passing it, but as it runs entirely across the whole bottom of the screen (not quite reaching the edges though), they wouldn't pass it as if i was to get stopped and mot checked they (the police/ vosa) would find it hard to believe the crack wasn't there when it was mot'd. Which i can see there point really, i wouldn't want anyone asking me to cut corners etc.

Would it not invalidate your insurance anyway, so a 10 fine is not really the point?

No it won't affect your insurance..
People run round all the time with expired MOT's, on trucks they are due on the anniversary month, not on a specific date..
I doubt ANPR would pick it up either..

Does anyone know for sure whether there are ANPR cameras on the M25/M4 from Dover to Wokingham? And weather ANPR check for MOT/road tax?

My MOT has expired and wondering whether I should do it when I land in Dover or risk driving like this?

Cheers guys.

MOT is about the last thing they're looking for. ANPR checks whether the vehicle has a log book, is insured and taxed and is registered to a known banned driver or possibly criminal. At some point it might get around to checking MOTs but it also might not. If it only expired weeks ago you're very unlikely to be pursued. As in through the fixed penalty system, not as in down the road at 120mph with the blue lights and stuff.... This assumes that the local bizzies aren't having a crackdown on old bangers without tickets and you get caught in the same net.

Having said that if you have an accident and your insurer finds out you don't have an MOT they will try to use that as an excuse not to pay out.

I remebered mine had expired a few days ago and was prompted to get it sorted by a rash of roadside spot checks on the way to work one week.
