@Noddy1965, I think that is a good thing. Other countries are strict and it is about time this country was stricter. Lights and brakes must be working correctly, as certain other things before you pass your MOT. I do not need to worry, as my car is a motability car, and is checked by the garage before MOT.

 

You should always make sure that all your lights work.  So many people drive without correct lighting, I have noticed, and the other day someone was driving without their lights on, so I flashed the person, who was going in the other direction. I believe he had only just started his journey, but it was getting dark and should have had the lights on, as not light enough to drive without.

 

I know, that in some countries, if you have rust, you will not pass the MOT either, for instance.

For making money yes, for hassle no, had few cars in where EML stuffed up

(often RGT cars) to find there is a problem that doesn’t effect emissions 

that is grief to fix hence why bulb stuffed up 

 

would be better failure dirty cars, as in food, toys and tools everywhere 

ones that stink, boo hazard
