MOT'd for another year

My Seven passed its MOT test today. That's a bit of a result considering that at 11 pm last night it wouldn't start (same old problem), the rear offside light didn't work, and after trying the hazard lights, the indicators wouldn't flash. Then, this morning, it wouldn't start (low battery voltage?) and I had to give it a jump from Susie's Toyota.

Whilst I was there, Mark at the West End Service Station dropped the bombshell that they are closing in November (the owner is retiring and has sold to a property developer), so I'll have to find somewhere else to go next year. So if you know of an MOT test station in the Reading / Windsor / Bracknell area which knows and understands Sevens (so that I don't have to explain that it's not even worth testing the emissions because my car is exempt, and no I don't have to have a windscreen), and is keen to try to pass the car rather than find faults which they think they're going to be able to charge me to fix, then please do let me know.
