Britain is not in the EU -apparently

I visited the local vehicle test centre with the campervan today. Having spent the last few weeks installing new headlights and foglights and making it generally neat and tidy, I thought there was nothing more I could do to prepare it for the test.

I didn’t expect it to sail through, but I certainly didn’t expect an outright refusal to test it. According to the proprietor, since it is a U.K. reg van it cannot be tested since Britain is not in the EU and the proof of this is they don’t use the Euro.

Now, I do my own work on cars and I have always thought that, despite the popular opinion that mechanics are a bunch of dumbasses, it requires a modicum of brainpower to diagnose problems and repair them safely.

Thanks for bursting my bubble Herr Mechanic.
