As above.

MOT tester tested my bike on Thursday, but put the mileage down as 17xxx instead of 13xxx. Theres no way i'll do 4k on it before the next MOT.

It was mentioned to him at the time, but he said that he couldn't change it once it had been submitted (which is wrong, as he could have corrected it).

Where do I stand on getting it corrected or sorted out? I'm more annoyed that it makes it harder to confirm the mileage in future and can bugger up any future HPI checks.

Might be a problem, as it was MOT'd by the previous owner as I was buying it. Its not a local garage so not easy to get back to him.

They have to correct it. Think they can change it up to 10 days after test. Tell them you will contact vosa if they dont. That will make them do it!

Do you have any proof of your mileage though before the MOT? If you don't im sure its going to be a case of his word against yours. He can just say you've clocked it back after the MOT.

No proof as such, other than the fact that the clocks haven't been tampered with and it was mentioned to him at the time.

Don't want to put a downer on the situation but professionals could easily make anything look like it hasnt been tampered with so.. If he really doesnt want to, I think you may struggle.

If I do more than 4k miles this year, it won't be as much of a problem. Its a pain though, as I went for a bike that had all its paperwork in order and then the garage messed it up!

Its possible to change it an issue another certificate. Its not hard to do either it will take about 10 minutes and vosa will shaft him if he doesnt sort it out so phone the test station and tell they you want it correcting and a replacement certificate or your going to call vosa and have them investigated.

You can change the mileage, ring vosa for instructions of how to do it. I had to do it when it was pointed out to me the clocks on the bike were in km not miles after i had printed the test sheet and this was around 6 days after doing it

Wont lose his license but still worth reporting them to DVLA!

You cant change mileage once its inputted but you have to send the ticket off to the VOSA who will change it and send it back.

I know this as we fucked up at work and put summit like 102222 rather than 10222
