just pointing out how little you may know if you're still referring to VOSA. There is no "explanation" needed by the driver if the MOT is expired. If the truck is roadworthy by a "walk around check" the driver has done his job.
It may not be MOT worthy, but our job is to check basics like lights, tyres, wheels, glass and so on and so forth. We're not MOT testers, how can we be in trouble for a failed MOT unless it's something we should absolutely pick up on said walk around check?
DVSA would not confirm driver’s responsibilities for these checks they lie with the operator under licence obligations and PG9 may be issued if stopped with dvsa a no mot or other issue mate
it was changed not long after the need to have a valid mot disc and plate attached to the trailer, somebody had the good sense to accept the driver couldn't easily know and along as he'd done his safety checks its not his responsibility
same here they do the same job regardless what name you give them, from wheel tappers etc
The PMI is the time when the vehicle gets a full check and any defects are fixed to ensure the roadworthiness of the vehicle

not the drivers responsibility it's the operator's responsibility, and if they don't know when there vehicles are due mot it brings in to question there roadworthiness anyways
and if they are inspected, so a day in front of traffic commissioner is due
