Car MOT Manual 2012 onwards
Drivers View of the Road - 8.1 View to Rear
Where such devices are fitted, the MoIs and RfRs apply to both the cameras and the screen. There are three acceptable rear view mirror/device positions:
a. an exterior mirror or device that provides a view along the offside of the vehicle
b. an exterior mirror or device that provides a view along the nearside of the vehicle
c. an interior mirror or a device which provides a view to the rear of the vehicle.
2. Sit in the drivers seat and check that each obligatory mirror or indirect vision device provides an adequate view to the rear. Note: It is not generally necessary to adjust mirrors or devices for this check.
2. An obligatory mirror or indirect vision device:
a. obscured, damaged or deteriorated so that the view to the rear is seriously impaired
b. does not provide an adequate view to the rear or is incapable of being adjusted to provide an adequate view.
