Consider the following scenario:
"Aisha" is the registered keeper of a car she bought on credit.
"Benin" has had control of the car for the last 2 years following his divorce from Aisha.
A few months ago Aisha, as the registered keeper, received reminders that the MOT1 was due to expire which she forwarded to Benin.
Benin said that he tried to get an MOT test but the garage cancelled the appointments.
Despite the MOT expiring, Benin is still driving the car on the road.
If Benin is stopped by the police, what are the legal implications for him and Aisha?
And what options are available to Aisha to protect herself, e.g. forcing a sale of the car?
1In the UK, an MOT is a legally required annual vehicle safety test of road worthiness. Without one you are legally only allowed to drive to one place: An MOT garage to obtain one.
