Had an Mot yesterday with a clean pass.
I can confirm that front fog lights with Cree bulbs will pass. :)

glad to hear that both cars passed :)

 

Btw, you will pass an mot with whatever front fog lights you like fitted - they are not testable.

It is curious that they aren't tested as using ones modified for drl and non working fogs will get someone pulled.
Glad I'm not a traffic officer, the idiosyncrasies of vehicle regulations are a pain to keep up to date on.

Off topic but the amount of "One Eyed Cars" I see on the roads around my area is shocking,

 

And Because They Are One Light Down They Think It Is Acceptable To Drive Along With High Beam On.

 

One Tail Lighted Cars Annoy Me Too.

 

Rant Over

I actually lose count of the amount of cars i see driving around the area with one headlight working. Really annoying

 

And again I also lose count of the amount of cars I see with a tail light out, always seems to be coras n fiestas

Especially when we are having blizzards etc at the moment :-( a bulb could cost as little as 50 pence, I agree fitting it isn't easy these days

People are just to lazy to bother, I check my bulbs regularly and carry spare ones. I hate people who have one headlight out so put their fogs on as we'll to compensate.

Totally agree.
Driving with their fog lights on to compensate in my view infers that they know their headlight is out, ergo they know they're driving the vehicle in an unfit condition and deserve to be pulled.

I would never put a 50p bulb in my headlights though :P I actually like seeing where I'm going which is why I trumped for the osrams

 

Can't say I know what the going rate for tail light bulbs is though so it may well be 50p for all I know

 

Is very annoying though especially when its really dark at night and it just looks like a motorbike is coming up behind you till it gets close enough. Having fogs on with a headlight out is another annoying thing

 

 

 

Well done Kieron anyway mate on passing the MOT. Ain't that long ago since mine sailed through with not one advisory

Exactly mate which is why you'd have a field day if you went on patrol round here

Its the damp and cold that causes them to go. Just when you need them most
