Can you drive a SORN car to an MoT test?

Can my SORN'd, uninsured car be driven to it's pre-booked MOT by the garage proprietor/MOT tester using his own insurance?

It is legal to drive a car that is SORN to a pre-booked MoT if it is insured, so if the garage proprietor is willing to do so on their insurance they must be prepared to present the required evidence of the pre-booked MoT and insurance if stopped by the police.
