According to DVSA the time is added 7 days before its current expiry date. Its done this way to stop 20+ million cars all needing an mot in October.
It can also be recinded at any point should they decide to.

Rode it! I nipped to asda pharmacy for my weekly prescription. Then changed a few more bolts, got rid of the soft screws on the carb tops and the bolts that hold the grab rail/rack on.

Good news - got out on mine too, today for my monthly bloodtest to my local GP

Bad news - they reckon I don't need one for another 3 months

Need to find another excuse.....
