So what happens when I take the car to a garage for repairs and they need to do a test drive but dont have a PH badge ?

For hackney the testers have a law which allows them exemption.

For PH they have a Ministers statement, from about 10 years ago, that exempts them from prosecution.

Shh, don't tell our LA testing station. They used to take PH/hacks out on test drives to check the meter until someone pointed out only badge holders can drive, so now all checks are done with the tester in the passenger seat.

One or two were given badges but after a bit of a fuss that was stopped as they didn't have to do the NVQ/CRB/Medical/Knowledge that all normal applicants had to - literally just handed a badge.

That may well be in your neck of the woods, but not round here.
