the mere fact that they are attempting to do you for minor items(and yes they DO count the same as if you had missed lets say a bald tyre)9 mnths later smacks of either incompetence or desperation-probably both.side marker wiring slightly damaged?a disciplinary letter for that?scraping the barrel is the polite version!

Thanks man, yep I've sent a letter back explaining the seats had been changed post mot & the owner/presenter admits this. Something I didn't mention before is that it had water tanks fitted in front & behind the rear axle which restricted a thorough visual check & asked if they'd since been removed. I might not have seen them or the damaged side marker lamp wiring being slightly damaged... I'll let you know how they reply, if at all...

first thing is refuse to accept disciplinary,9mnths?laughable and against their own rules as are the faults/original period of appeal,ok summa them are classified as minor if you didnt tick the correct box but all are outside their 28 day job and while they can extend that in what they consider "exceptional circumstances"none are major and some by the owners own admission werent present at original test which on its own proves the vehicles condition has changed/been worked on post test.theres an ex ve on here called stealth who would have a better idea.place a written complaint with the dept concerned about their conduct preferably via a legal letter of some sort outlining that you are not accepting their verdict and notifying them that if they dont withdraw this you will be appealing as per the date you actually got informed of this(illegal)with the relevant notice period that applies during a standard appeal cos this sounds like a simple con job to try and scare you while making it appear they are doing their job(cos they aint at least to an acceptable standard)and thats plain illegal,it was either a successful appeal or it wasnt,they aint allowed to pretend it was when it wasnt,do yourself a favour,read the guide(we gotta this year anyway!)and pay particular attention to the section on disciplinarys when drafting your letter or better still get professional help via trade bodies etc,yeah its inconvenient but its a black mark that aint gonna go away on its own(and they NEVER go away from the records)that if your post is accurate that you aint earned and is entirely in breach of their own rules and guidelines while leaving you vulnerable in the event of any mistakes for any reasons within the next few years.unacceptable.
