Indeed it is, Ask Brigante.
He had his MOT not too long ago with the double reverse mod.

As Clive says, yup my car recently had it MOT about a month ago.

Passed first time with no advisories.

And as you can tell from my photo, i have the twin cree reverse lights. Pass with then fitted, no problems

The reverse light is not mot testable

Yep sorry. My comment earlier was regarding fog - cold / flu brain not fully connecting all the dots at the moment : /

I'm looking at doing this because I have factory rear privacy tints and the standard single reverse light is pretty useless when reversing at night in the unlit gym car park - thankfully I have parking sensors.... Although it didn't prevent me from reversing into the brick wall at Halfords the other day :)

I think halfords have special stealth walls and posts outside their shops on purpose so you need to buy filler and paint from them. :D
Outside my local one they have metal posts that are too low to see out of a rear window.

LOl!
My mates dad has a body shop like that... The gate into the place is about 30ft wide but everyone insists on reversing round the corner and out the gate too tight for some reason. It's made an absolute fortune lol!
Brigante
This is why i got a reversing camera :D
Stoney871
Is that so you can pick the precise wall or lamppost to reverse into rather than random ones? :P
Brigante
Oh aye I'm very picky
Stoney871
:D
