    Well you're right it won't pass a "proper" MOT but don't think I have ever see a garage check to deeply:

    MOT Test of Steering

    Steering: Inside the car MOT checks
    Steering wheel and steering column:

    • Steering wheel is in acceptable condition

    • Steering wheel is securely attached to the steering shaft

    • A steering lock mechanism must not be missing, inadvertently engaging or inoperative

    • An electronic steering lock malfunction lock warning must not be indicating a malfunction

    • An electronic power steering malfunction indicator lamp must not be indicating a malfunction

    • Upper bearings of the steering column are inspected for wear

    • Steering shaft is checked for excessive end float

    • The clamping bolts are all checked for security

    • Split pins and locking nuts are also checked.

    • 'Free play' in the steering is checked*

    • All flexible couplings and universal joints are checked


      Pretty sure the new unit would have to be programed
