I presume you have some knowledge of this Insignia, so you presumably know the facts, but I can think of several ways it can happen - apart from just being driven illegally.....


Car could have had a plate transfer (and subsequent reversion) so MOT wouldn't show against original number.


Car could have been outside UK - it isn't unknown for people to run cars outside UK without renewing UK MOT and Tax......just like there are many non-UK reg cars running around over here. It ain't legal but is mostly filed in the "too much hassle" box by authorities.


Car could have had replacement speedo head unit, and actually have been off the road for a prolonged period......


Reverting to the original E10EFL issue, there is definitely something wrong with the DVLA / DVSA records - one clearly shows the 2016 reg car as MOT'd, whereas the other shows it having had no MOT. Both can't be right

Driven on the road, almost daily, for the entire period. Fully legally.

As posted, there are many ways it can happen and the MOT record doesn't always tell the full story.

It's a case of public and private databases taking a while to sync.

Hold on. The DVLA is the public database. There's a private one?

The DVLA deals with licences, while the DVSA deals with standards.
Both will maintain separate public and private databases regarding vehicles registered in the UK.
Some vehicles will not appear on one (or both) public databases. Examples include vehicles registered to Govt entities.

I don't know how.it works, all I know is the .gov database for my car was updated and I knew it had passed its MIT before the garage rang to tell me. So IDK what's going on.

And yes re the "anti global warming" faux pas - whoops mea culpa Sorry, sloppy wording. I promise to do better in 2024.

That’s one clever car to graduate from MIT.
