New MOT Law
The minor faults are flagged on the MOT certificate with other advisory notices.
Diesel particulate filters (DPF) will now also be checked, and you’ll be failed if you’ve had it removed or tampered with it.
The smoke test limit will also be slashed.
Other changes to the MOT test include the addition of a check for reverse lights, while brake discs will be inspected to see if they are “significantly or obviously worn”.
