Refused an MOT.

Just got a shock.Took my B3 to an MOT station and when I returned after an hour ,the tester said he couldn't do the test because my car had 2 VIN no's. Although I told him about the relevant details he refused to carry out the test. He said that he had been testing for 20+ years and I was talking ru...
