MOT Questions




Matched Headlamps

Is it illegal to use headlamps which have a different degree of brightness

Name: J fRANCK Town: Surbiton

The manual states that headlights must be a matched pair A matched pair is a pair of lamps which both emit light of substantially the same colour and intensity, and are both the same size and of such a shape that they are symmetrical to one another there is no separate legal information but if it fails the MOT you can assume it could be an offence


American Motorcycle lights

I have an US imported motorcycle on which the headlight and tailight are always on and there is no switch to turn them off, only a low and main beam. Also there is no side light fitted nor a switch for one. Will this pass

Name: John Town: Bideford

The manual states reason for failure of headlight can be . A headlamp levelling or cleaning device inoperative or otherwise obviously defective. 3. A missing, insecure or obviously incorrectly positioned obligatory headlamp if the bracket causes any of these two then the vehicle will fail


Xenon

My cars xenon headlight washer does not automatically return to its rest position flush with the bumper after activation and need to be manually pushed down. Is this a MOT failure

Name: Funso Babatunde Town: Bolton

Providing the washers function and the position where the blades come to rest do not greatly impair the light emission it will pass


EU headlight deflectors

I fitted headlamp beam deflectors to my 2011 Octavia for a trip to France. Now that Im back in the UK, can I leave them on or would they cause an MoT failure

Name: John Bisson Town: Birkenhead

You will fail if you leave the deflectors on they are designed to avoid dazzling oncoming traffic which is why you need them in the EU due to driving on the opposite side to the UK


DLR Lights

I have just fitted aftermarket DRL lights, with a wiring kit. Will it fail an MOT if DRL dont turn off when headlights are turned on just ive seen new cars that have them on with headlights on. Thanks

Name: s watson Town: carlisle

DLRs are designed to make vehicles more visible during daylight hours and are now common on vehicles of testable age. DRLs themselves are not covered by the manual and are therefore not testable items.


Damaged headlight

My passenger side headlight cover has a hole in it where I caught it on a bush. The hole is in the top far right corner and as far as I can see doesnt effect the lights at all. Will this pass an MOT

Name: JANIS KANE Town: STEWARTON

Providing it does not effect the light then it will pass if the tester thinks it may deteriorate then he may give an advisory

Headlight Deflectors

Hello, my grey import will undergo a VOSA test and then MOT. The headlights are non adjustable right or left they do adjust up and down which means they point straight ahead. brbrIve tried searching both overseas and UK main dealership but they only have similar headlight. Ive also considered aftermarket options but none are available. brbrAre there any concessions given in the test centre for this anomaly Or any fixes available

There are many different types of head light deflectors which if fitted properly will pass MOT inspection and keep you safe

Name: Ghassan Aldhahi Town: CARDIFF

If it is left hand drive dipped headlights need to be change to point to the left


rear light

My partner has a bandit 1200 it has just failed its MOT due to the rear headlight being a LED style with the indicators included on the main unit. If the main light is switched on and the indicator is activated it does dull the red beam but half still stays illuminated once indicator is switched off the red beam is restored straight away. Is this correct in it failing as the light also specifies it is road legal. brbrKind regards brbrDonna

Name: Donna Town: Biggleswade

Reason for rejection. A lamp which is adversely affected by the operation of another lamp is cause for rejection hence the failure the fact that switching on the main beam causes the red lamp to dull is the problem




My car had an advisory on insecure headlights but I did not get to have it repaired. It passed MOT despite that at the same main dealer. Do I still have to repair, the light is tightly fixed at the top but can be pushed slightly at the bottom.

Name: Tina Town: Ashford

An advisory notice means that in the opinion of the tester that the component is likely to deteriorate but at the time of the test it was ok a good description of an advisory is that if your tyres were legal but only had enough tread for 3000 more miles before they would fail then the tester normally would give you an advisory notice




Due to the reorganisation of the HGV testing facilities my local testing facility has been finding it impossible to find an available slot for the retest that my HGV 7.5 tonne just to check out a readjusted headlight and a repaired rear fog light. It appears that the current arrangements do not have enough capacity and my vehicle has now been off the road for 2 weeks because I cannot get it retested. What are the obligations of the original test facility to retest me during the 10 day retest window

Name: Paul Hubbard Town: Royston Herts

There are no rules about this but only the original garage can give you a retest if you are willing to present your vehicle within the ten days and give reasonable notice then the garage should retest you if not you can call 0845 600 5977 local rate. and complain
