After some 27 years in roadside enforcement I've learned to remain impartial as far as legislation is concerned Paul.

Fair or not this was passed & rubber stamped in 2014 & we have to live with it.

Legislation will continue to include more & more electronics & so called driver aids in future.

For an interesting read try looking up the EU proposals on Anti Tamper legislation on powertrains.

Stealth failing an engine management light staying on is not fair on the basis it passes the smoke or emission test what do you think?

The New Testing Guide & to quote a Biker 'It doesn't specify what brake fluid should consist of so any fluid you put in that operates the brakes is in that case "brake fluid".
Can of worms anyone ?
https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/cars/899994/Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-Stelvio-recall-brake-fluid
"Vehicles with contaminated brake fluid may experience decreased braking performance when depressing the brake pedal. This defect may, in certain cases, cause a vehicle crash without prior warning.

“Decreased brake performance may provide some warning prior to a failure. In the case of brake failure, a warning light will appear on the Electronic Vehicle Information Center providing limited warning.”

Defect that no longer cause an MOT test fail: master cylinder cap missing.
New item that you will test from 20 May 2018 are: brake fluid contamination.

THIS IS A CONTRADICTION as brake fluid is hygroscopic & therefore will be contaminated if the cap is missing further & without speculating there would be the potential of an imminent risk of failure if this cap was not in place. How then can a tester be expected to 'Minor' it or advise knowing the role brake fluid plays?..or are they expected to just fail 'Major' or 'Dangerous' it under contamination?

To add salt to injury 'brake fluid level below the minimum mark' is a 'Minor' advise?
