Reversing lights don't come into the mot test.
So they do not check them.
Good luck for the mot!

thanks Cars, after too many MOT tests for me to remember I never realised they didn't test the rev lamp :oops: ,

 after crawling under the car and whipping the broken switch off the front of the gearbox, I'll now have to crawl back under it first thing in the morning & pop it back on to stop the oil from pissing out :cry:

cheers, Richie

car is now MOT'ed, passed first time, ?100 for car, ?40 for new H/light, indicator, & rev lense,  cheap motoring or what,  cost me ?140 for 1 tyre for the GTO,
car is now on loan to my mate until he gets his 500 sorted, or I confiscate it from him :lol:


car is amazing condition apart from dent in front and a couple of minor scrapes, no rust, no welding, 25K, 2 owners, grandma & grandson(numpty who dented & scraped it)
great little parts chaser & more space in the back for moaning gits than aforementioned money pit
