Easiest is to accept what the V5 says and just mot it. I sent Dave the details of an old Ford that omn the DVSA mot data base had 2 pages of failures in Feb 19 but somw were examiners lack of knowledge. However this car was at a meet last week and the DVLA tax site shows taxed, no mot and mot not due till May 2020.

So what the ANPR susyem show is a guess but I would think it is liable for a pull.

After the MOT fail they probably just taxed it and declared exemption, the May 2020 date will be when it needs taxing and re-declaring as MOT exempt.

Declaring exception after being recorded as a failure is just asking for trouble    :-X

Classic case of DVLA and DVSA having different computer systems and not knowing their own let alone each other's rules though. He'd only get in trouble as a result of an accident or a (few and far between) spot check. Bonkers!
