missing spare wheel isn't an mot failure, given the fact many new cars don't come with a spare wheel at all

as above - if you have a spare wheel and to pass an mot it must be road legal, correct tread depth etc

But if you havenít got one thereís nothing to test and as you are not legally required to carry a spare you canít fail :)

Well had its mot failed both top mounts knackered split pin missing from the castle nut on the track rod ends and the rear offside spring snapped about two inches from the top so got a bit of work to do at the weekend :D You don't need a spare wheel any more unbelievable :unsure:
