Just had my MOT [every 2 years] and Emissions test [separate but also every 2 years] on my 11 year old car. Took it to the local garage who did a full service and check. They then took it to the Government test centre and returned it to my house on completion. Total cost for full service and tests was £125 so no complaints from me. My question is why 2 years interval here in Hungary and 1 year in the UK? .... and why such a rediculous price for the test in the UK? [The tests and equipment look identical to the UKs. So much for European harmonisation.
