    Should be just the wear limiter itself don't think the amount of material on the pad is in itself an MOT failure

    As far as im aware you cant fail for low pads, it will only fail if it fails the brake test. Nothing can be removed while doing an MOT for example your bonnet has a hole in it all you have to do is put black tape over it and they cant touch the tape. So they cant take your wheel off to check the pads.
