That depends on whether or not its raining at the time of test. If its raining a lot of course I would fail .If its just spotting however, I would pass and advise with the wording -

"Intermediate/wet tyres recommended" - in the text box.

LOL Kev

I would fail it under the RFR registration plate light  not fitted, and may do it twice just to make a point (N/S and O/S)!!!

As such, I guess for MOT purposes it should be a pass & advise because it's not an obligatory light under any regs until registration is complete.  On the other hand, as soon as DVLA finish the paperwork the exemption goes out the window and he'll be illegal without one. 

From the sound of his smartarse attitude, hopefully he'll get pulled over in short order :D


Thanks, SM,;)

This particular vehicle will have had an Obscene amount of money thrown at it before the new owner gets it back from the presenter, and I am pretty sure that It Will be finished in excess of any requirements.;)

ps; the presenter has Trade Plates,

Wes.

Thanks Stealth,;)

Yes, I was referring to the Registration Plate "Lamps",;)

As this is obviously an aged imported vehicle and new to computerisation, It was registered on the system using the VIN only and the Documentation Presented.

The Presenter Stated, As There are "No Registration Plates Fitted" Where Is The Requirement For A "Registration Plate Lamp"?:?

Hey!;)

Where Now?:?

Guess next years inspection might just result in a Fail.;)

I think he did mean Reg. plates.
We used to do loads of imported Pajeros a few years ago,
oddly they all had the same wheels and tyres on. By that I mean the same set!!!

Hi Guys,

Have recently had an Imported vehicle presented for an MOT, There are "No" "Registration Plates" fitted.;)

The Presenter States that there are No Registration Plates fitted as it has just been Imported and questions the lighting requirement? as "None" are present or fitted.;)

Apart from the Lighting, everything else on the vehicle Has been, "retro", updated, new front and rear suspension, braking components, etc, etc, apart from the visual aspect of the vehicle, "Rat";), Lighting, with beam benders fitted to the headlamps is as standard as it left the factory.;)

Where Now?:?

P&A?:?
