Reminder service for MOT
Suffolk's Roads Policing officers are encouraging motorists to log their details with a new service that reminds people of their MOT expiry date.
The Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) has set up a text service, which sends a message to your mobile phone when your MOT is due.
Anyone wishing to sign up can go to:
for details on how to register. You will need to supply a UK-registered mobile telephone number, a UK-registered vehicle and the vehicle's latest MOT test number found on their current MOT certificate.
Once this is completed you will receive text reminders of your MOT expiry date on three occasions: five weeks before, two weeks before and the day before.
To use this service there is a one-off charge of £1.50 (including VAT). This charge will be collected through your mobile phone network provider once your registration has been accepted, but is a lot cheaper than a Fixed Penalty or worse!
Police Benefits Portal
Hanson Wealth has produced a Police Benefits Portal containing links to discounts and special offers available to members of the police service. Take a look at www.policebenefits.co.uk to see what is on offer.
