Is handbrake warning light required for MoT?

Recommended Posts

According to the official DVSA (VOSA as was) owner guide on the web (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/your-car-and-the-mot/your-car-and-the-mot--3#components-to-be-inspected)...


brakes: condition including inappropriate repairs or modifications, operation and performance (efficiency test). Note the removal of the road wheels and trims are not part of the test. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) where fitted. Check of the dashboard Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) for ABS, ESC, electronic park brake and brake fluid warning.


So no mention of the "handbrake" on warning light for a car with a mechanical handbrake.
