One interesting thing - this morning I noticed that my average mpg (reset a few hundred miles ago) had gone down from an indicated 54 mpg to 46 mpg. Only made it back up to 47 mpg on the way to work, so I don't think it had been reset.
Presumably this shows how much they thrash the engine during the emissions test. Or something else was going on.
Sometimes I wake up grumpy. Sometimes I let her sleep in.

1. There are now 3 categories of fault for an MoT test
a). Dangerous. The vehicle may not be driven away. It can be recovered.
. Major. This is an MoT fail.
c). Minor. This replaces the old advisory category. They are not a test fail.
A vehicle may be driven to/from a pre-booked MoT test without VED or MoT certificate; it must still be insured. Now it can only be driven away after a test fail under category .
2. Previously, brake testing was limited to leakage and efficiency. In theory, metal on metal on both sides could still pass if the amount of braking was sufficient and balanced.
3. The emissions test requires that the engine be at operating temperature and the test is performed at near maximum revs.
