Not having a good day there fella.

Depending how much damage there is insurance will probably write it off as they will have a low book value for it.

As for ABS light, surely they didn't fail you for it NOT coming on?? If you mean it failed because the light on your dash was on, need to check which wheel is the porblem. Might just be dirt on the sensor which a good jet wash session will sort out.

Well I guess that means it doesnt come on when you switch on the ignition, which would be a fail as it wouldnt warn you of a problem with the abs. Check the dash bulb.
Tho at the mo it does sound like the least of your problems. Hope you get it all sorted.

I took my ABS bulb out because it was on permanently, passed its MOT no problem ? Maybe a jobsworth tester?

because if you put 'trim' over a light that isn't extinguishing then an MOT tester can't remove trim to 'test' anything.

BUT

If a car has ABS installed then the ABS light must come on, then go off.
