I doubt very much whether the ANPR cameras would pick up my MOT status, they don't in the UK on foreign vehcles. Before leaving I had everything checked, faults recified and it sailed the MOT, plus I always carry all the shit they demand in France.

Transporting my vehicle back to the UK would have cost £thousands, so the extremely low risk was worth it.

The vehicle is kep down here, but ext year when I go back I will be fully legal..

The Corsa I have here too has a SORN on it and is kept in my driveway, so is perfectly legal and if I manage to sell it to a Brit he can get tax and insurance online and drive it back legally.

***** It would depend on the "alarm" status of the ANPR system.
Using in car terminals or PC based terminals one can "radio button" which headings are alarmed, on operations generally everything is activated, therefore any "hit" the vehicle is stopped however, for "normal day to day" running about, Police National Computer (PNC), Insurance, MOT and local "crime" would be active, Vehicle Excise Licence (VEL) might be turned off but it would depend on Force SOP's ***** .
Hope that helps :-)
