    I signed up about 6 weeks ago, got email confirmation so thought that was it. Asked for reminder by text. MOT was due 21st Nov. No reminder came 4 weeks ahead, nothing 2 weeks ahead. Luckily I was watching out for it so got it tested without a reminder. Lesson - no point in doing it if it don't work.

    They can. as an example I recently texted a bus time at a bus stop and got a text back telling me the time of the next bus that I wanted, got my phone bill later and noticed a 25 p charge for the text they sent me, soooooo ?

    Surely they have to inform you that there will be a charge ?

    Perhaps you are unaware of the common use of the word Beta when relating to software.

    Beta, named after the second letter of the Greek alphabet, is the software development phase following alpha.
    Beta phase generally begins when the software is feature complete but likely to contain a number of known or unknown bugs.Software in the beta phase will generally have many more bugs in it than completed software.
    Source Wikipedia 'cos I couldn't be bothered to explain it all on my own.

    To quote from the website:

    Sign up to get free reminders by text message or email when your MOT is due.

    So it is definitely free ...
    Remember - POI additions and updates can be sent by email to POI@wildcamping.co.uk
