so , after some faffing around, and the tester not being able to find the side lights switch ( dont ask.......) for which he failed the side lights and numberplate lights, and then failing both rear wheel bearings without the correct rear suspension testing method which detects drive shaft end float which is mistaken for wheel bearing wear , i now have a pass
but hold on,
while starting the car to prove the side lights , the thing decided to bounce the locks and lock me out of a running car !!!
20 mins of it ticking over my wife brings the spare key........stern looks and a tut....lesson learned....
upshot is, full MOT , clean bill of health and a compliment on how nice the car is
