    Engine : 1.9 CDTi

    Year : 2005

    Default HIDS will be illegal as of 1st of April

    HIDS will be illegal as of 1st of April

    2 of the guys from the garage I work at came back from their 2 day MOT refresher.

    As of the 6th January a new MOT test will start to be tested too (More things are tested) inc a car fitted with HID's and no washers or self levelling will have an advisory ..........................then as of the 1st of April the car will fail the MOT.

    This is not 'I have heard' or someone told me' this is direct from VOSA.

    The gap between the 6th of January and the 1st of April is so MOT tests can get into the swing of the new test before its fully enforced.

    Hope this helps people.

    Doesn't affect me to be honest , but i can just see more reasons to fail now ..
    more people doing cheap MOT's then making it up on other "fails"

    Thats one thing I thought.

    They can see if you have headlight washers but how would they check for self levelling (Unless they jack the rear up and see if they are still aligned correctly)

    Theres going to be a mad rush for headlight washers over the next few months


    I dont seem to see many cars with misaligned hids, its the idiots with normal bulbs that dont have a clue how to align them annoy me
