    Should have been 1st April

    Rules changed jan 1st but not enforced till 1st April to allow everyone to get used to it

    How I've read it is if their not fitted they can't be tested

    My MOT tester stated they will pass if the colour temp is suitable (ie not too blue). Also stated that cars post 2009 will require self levelling and wash systems to be fitted and working, but not pre 2009. So mine will pass!!
