I can`t see the TC going easy on them for this. That the reason it good when firms have a MOT test date on window so drivers can check on there walk round check.

Wouldn’t have made a difference as the stickers would have had the original test dates on before the extensions were given so would have been wrong anyway.

This potentially could have more serious repercussions as if any of the vehicles out of test were involved in accidents they are technically uninsured and any insurance company would use no valid MOT as a reason not to pay out.

RE: Warrington's Own Buses
Not to sure whether this bears any relevance but I went past the depot yesterday afternoon and there was quite a number of vehicles parked up out of service, also it seems they having to use whatever vehicles are available on various routes at the moment as a CAT branded MMC200 was out yesterday on 22 Warrington-Ashton in Makerfield service and one of the 32 branded Versas was out on 4 to Woolston, another Warrington's Own liveried Versa was out on 62 to Dutton.

Apart from routes that can't have deckers for obvious reasons there did seem to be more deckers out than normal unless this is normal for a weekday.

Bus times appears to be showing 5 temporary vehicles being used, 4 of which tracked yesterday. One of them is listed as P61 HOW.

Regarding deckers it looks like 304 did a lot more journeys than normal yesterday. I think it's a shame they've got those two nice modern Enviro 400 City vehicles and they often spend most of the day out-of-service.

From what i've seen the 32 Versas are rarely used on the 32 anymore, i think at least one has had the branding removed and is just the blue base livery.
