Cars used for driving tests

Lots of people in and around Bude are undertaking driving tests. If you are using your own vehicle, you need to be aware that:

From Monday 4 June 2018, you will not be able to use any vehicle (not including motorbikes) for a driving test if:

  • its engine management light is on, or if the light does not work
  • its reversing lights don’t work (this only applies to cars first used from 1 September 2009)

If the engine management light comes on during a driving test, and the car appears to be working normally, the test will continue. The driving examiner will tell you this happened at the end of the test.

New rules reflect MOT changes

The new rules reflect changes made to the MOT test on 20 May 2018. These defects are now classed as major defects in the MOT and cause the car to fail the test.

Presumably driving instructors are well on the ball and know what’s what…
