They are a friggin pain in the arse!

They print the advisorys on the PASS certificate even if it passes 1st time.


Puts off prospective buyers as they no longer need to ask for the advisory notice mad

Excuse my ignorance, but why have they gone back to the hand written sketch ?? Seems a strange move.

The Pinz goes in for its Class 7 on Thursday. It will be interesting to see what they give me.

this seems like a decent site http://forums.motester.co.uk/

I know that from jan cars with air bag lights on or E.M.L on will fail.

I hope they dont bring in the mot tests for every 2 yrs, thats just stupid.

Steering lock operation - Steering locks not engaging when the ignition key is removed will fail.

Engine warning lamps, brake fluid warning lamps, ESP lamps, EPB lamps illumination - ANY of the above illuminated indicating a fault will fail.

TPMS (Tyre pressure monitoring systems) warning lamps - Again, if illuminated indicating a fault, will fail.

Airbag/SRS lamp illumination - If this warning lamp is illuminated it will fail.

HID Headlamps - Now, a little grey area here. They will be included in the new test, and will fail if they prove to be outside of the specified conditions... but the conditions and reasons for rejections haven't been written/decided yet, so sit tight.

Wiring - Any wiring (loomed or otherwise) that is damaged, or fitted in such a way that could cause damage to said wiring, or other systems will fail.

Engine mountings - Engine mountings will be a part of the test. incorrect mounting, corrosion in a prescribed area etc will fail.

PAS (Power assisted steering) fluid level will be tested.

Rear doors must open in the new test. Previously (and currently), if the tester feels he can access the testable items in the rear (seatbelts, prescribed areas etc) without needing the doors open, they don't need to open. This will now be a failure.

13 pin towbar sockets - tested for correct operation using a plug in testing tool.

Inappropriate modifications or repairs - The wording on this is quite vague at the moment, but if a major component has been modified, and that modification/repair makes the vehicle dangerous or seriously weakens the original component, expect it to fail.

ANY ball joint dust cover - The small rubber boots over ball joints must be intact and free or splits, tears or holes, or it fails.

All CVJ gaiters will be tested - Currently, only the front outer] CVJ gaiters are tested. This new rule extends it to inner and outer, front and rear.

A catalytic converter missing WILL be a reason for failure, regardless of whether or not the emissions limits are met.

Fuel pipe chaffing or damage - Currently they only fail when they are leaking, this rule means that any chaffing or rubbing causing damage will fail.

The braking imbalance limit is lowered to 30% across all axles.

Vehicles built post July 2010 will have to have at least 58% braking efficiency to pass (currently it's 50% for a dual circuit braking system)

Insecure batteries will become a failure

The main beam warning lamp must illuminate with the main beam lamps
All light switches must operate the corresponding lights immediately. No tapping, or wiggling to make it work!

Remember, these changes will all be brought into testing starting from the 1st January 2012. The exact wording of each failure has yet to be released.
