The MOT testers manual for 2012 (sticky?)

2012 MOT testers manual (possibly won't work, it seems to have disappeared)
New link if the above doesn't work

That link is a link to the new (still technically "proposed" but must be almost final by now) MOT testers manual for the new regulations next year. Highlights:

1) aftermarket HIDs will still pass an MOT if they have a good beam pattern. Levelling and washers are NOT required, but if you do have them, they must work (section 1.7, page 1)

2) remaps are NOT an MOT test failure (no mention of the word "ECU" or "map" in the document at all)

3) decatted diesels are NOT an MOT test failure. Only vehicles which require a full emissions test are eligible for the new visual check for a cat, since there's no emissions test for diesels then they can't fall into this category. And since there's no emissions test, a decat can't make you fail it. As long as you can pass the smoke test, you're fine (section 7.1, page 1)

There's lots of uninformed people still commenting on threads with the various rumours that were going around months ago, mainly about the 3 points above. Everything you need to read is in this document, it's an official VOSA document which is now datestamped 01 Jan 2012, which is why I think this is pretty much the final version which will come into force in around ~6 weeks. Instead of blindly panicing about your HIDs/remap/decat, try spending some time reading this instead and work out how it will ACTUALLY affect you...

Cheers for that!

That also confirms that DIESEL cars registered after 1 July 08 now have new smoke rules

Quote:
After 6 free accelerations, the mean of the last 3 smoke levels is:
a.
for vehicles first used on or after 1 July 2008, more than 1.5m-1 for both turbocharged and non-turbocharged engines
b.
for vehicles first used before 1 July 2008:

for a non-turbocharged engine, more than 2.50m-1

for turbocharged engines more than 3.00m-1.

Jesus H Christ. Read the first post, you drongo. And then read the manual. And then delete that post and preferably never come back. That's the problem with the size of this forum, the average reading age can be measured in months, most days...

Strange, would have thought the DFT could cope with a few hits. I can always upload it somewhere else, but that link will always lead to the latest copy. Not that I think it's going to change much now it's not watermarked as a draft, they're running out of time for changes now given that it's only 6ish weeks away.

Here's the section that applies to hids

Take what you may

To me that says if hids are fitted with accompanying levellers an washers all 3 must be functional....

IF THEY ARE FITTED!

Therefore if you don't have levellers or washers you cannot fail for not having them!

which is exactly what gac said in the opening post:
