From the AA website:
If you've been happily ignoring a warning light because it's not checked in the MOT you could soon be facing an MOT failure and an expensive repair bill because of changes to the test.
From 1 January 2012, the Department for Transport added several new mandatory test items to the annual MOT to comply with a revised European testing directive.
There are ongoing discussions about the changes,but I'm fairly certain that visible warning lights that remain on when the engine is running,would be a failure.
