MOT info needed - pretty urgent


In short .. cousin bought a RRS today... MOT expired yesterday on tyres. He had it booked in today to get new tyres and retest closer to home as car was bought miles away.

Now .. from what i know because he pre-booked test he was insured to drive to the MOT centre.

BUT .. due to traffic etc .. he got tyres done, but MOT centre was closed.

Someone has told him that he has 10 days to sort car tyres out and can use the car normally in the meantime, but as far as i was aware - if he drives the car normally he will be driving without insurance and could get into trouble with the law as the MOT is expired and having a failed test even if its only for tyres still doesn't allow him to drive it.

Can anyone shed some light??
Been there, done that, driven the 'Ring
