An eagle-eyed Coronation Street fan has claimed that Street Cars owner Steve McDonald is driving around the cobbles without an MOT on his car.
According to The Sun, Corrie viewer Mike Ash apparently typed in the registration number of the silver Toyota taxi that Steve is regularly seen driving into the DVLA website to see what would come up.
Mike was reportedly shocked to see that the MOT on Steve’s car apparently ran out months ago.
The dedicated Corrie fan told The Sun how he stumbled upon his bizarre discovery…
“I thought I’d punch the taxi’s details in for a laugh – then saw Steve McDonald was driving around without a certificate.
“He’s picking up all sorts of Corrie legends in his cab so I don’t know what ITV are playing at having him drive around in a car that’s not legal.”
The newspaper claimed that the fan has been in touch with Coronation Street, asking for the mistake to be rectified.
It also reported that even cars driven on private roads must have a valid MOT certificate.
The car has been seen on screen a number of times recently, ferrying Corrie locals around as they go about their daily chores.

Mike also joked that if Steve wanted to get his car up to date and get an MOT, he could ask Tyrone Dobbs for a hand: “There’s a garage right on their doorstep!”
Entertainment Daily contacted Coronation Street and a spokesperson said: “The Coronation Street set is private property so an MOT isn’t actually required on this vehicle. However, there was an MOT in place when filming took place at the beginning of March. We film 6-8 weeks in advance of transmission.”
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV
