Just basics is a good start really. All lights working etc. Washers working and hitting the screen (challenge on a Dolly lol) Wipe any oil from underneath to put the tester in a good mood :)

Tony.

ps DVLA now do a reminder service for free for mot expiry. You get a mail a month before its due then 2 weeks before its due
