MOT Certificates.

Took the Prince for it's annual going over yesterday. The new MOT certificates are a farce. My son when he was about 5 could reproduce these using Windows Front page Publisher. My mate who did the MOT says he has already had certificates come back for checking because the less honest of people cut out a square of white paper to cover up the section where it requires work to be done and then photocopies it leaving it blank. We know it only takes a phone call to DVLA to check the info but i'm sure people will be taken in by it.

Agreed. I gather station stations now have to provide paper and ink cartridges themselves for their printers. The new documents hardly look like a certificate do they?
