    This. Did it with a Modus some years back. Find a test station, a place where they only do MOT's is a good place to start for obvious reasons. Get the ECU cleared and maybe blank off the EGR if you're feeling adventurous. And before the MOT get the engine nice and warm and give it a bloody good welly up the bypass.

    Having no DPF is an mot failure but....
    You can do as I did on my 2011 Vito
    Have the DPF removed, cut a square out of the top and bash out all the internals, weld back up and refit and reprogram the ecu to forget the DPF
    Cost me 300 ish quid cash

    That way then on the mot it looks as if you have a DPF and they can't see the welded square on top !
