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.
