Had mine tested this morning, passed with no advisories.
Tester had difficulty accepting the emissions , couldn't believe reading was so low !!
He suspected leaky exhaust, but found it to be ok.

Did mine a couple of weeks ago. 2000 Caravelle, owned six months. 137500 miles, with little history since 100k, I was a little worried about emissions and prevaricated so much that MoT had actually expired by the time I got around to booking it in! Also, with it being a cheap voucher deal I wondered if they might try and find some work to do on it?

Turned out I shouldn't have worried, it was all good (including the coffee as I waited). A couple of advisories:-
1.Amber brake wear light - discussed with tester beforehand as I know some dash warning lights are now a fail. I'd checked fronts / replaced rears & found that one sensor was missing, one corroded. Not worth getting new - tester was helpful, gave me directions for a local VW breakers.
2. Engine covers obstructing. New as of last year? Ironic, given that the main undertray isn't fitted.

Derby ATS will get my business next year T:
