    Yous are idiots

    Yes youre allowed to remove them, so long as you can see an indicator from side on then you don't HAVE to have a side repeater. On an EG you can see the front indicators from side on

    Having the side repeaters there and them not working is a fail, if they were completely removed then thats perfectly legal

    ok cool.....what if i got different wings for my MOT and then change it back after?

    if i get stopped by the police will i get done for it.

    Entirely upto you whether you choose to get different wings for MOT time..

    As for being pulled up by Police for lack of side repeaters; I think the officers would have to be having severe marital problems to stop you for this reason alone..

    Better safe than sorry though..

    Don't call me an idiot. Especially when i.m right. My brother runs a MOT test centre. If your car is made after a certain year, can't remember the year, side repeaters must be present. Before that year they are optional. Some MOT testers go on there own views. Megaman i have seen cars come in for MOT with double sided sticky tape holding them on, and the wires coming through the wing, bonnet gap. This amazingly is a pass.

    You don't need to worry about the police or MOT.

    Its completely legal because the front indicators go slightly to the side of the vehicle.

    Will pass MOT no probs.

    As for cops, the pigs probably won't realise anyway.

    just been on vosa. It states all cars registered after 1st of april 1986must have side repeaters and hazard lights to pass a MOT and be road legal. I would link but i.m on my phone. But its easy to find. Just google 'vosa side repeaters 1986'

    i've seen it smilley792 your right but you only need them for MOT
  16. Smiley Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    well yeah. I knew the answer, got questioned so did the leg work to prove i was right, and told you how to find it. You on the other hand. Have choice not to back up your theory, but instead act the big man behind your computer, and get lairy. I suggest you wind your neck in and go get some proof you are right. Otherwise gtfo

    I frankly don't give 2 shits :Smile:

    I've seen the question asked on a local forum with a police liason officer and im relaying his answer. If mr police says its okay then thatll do for me :Smile:
  20. Smiley Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    police don't do MOT mate. And if you claim you don't give a shit then why you still here. And as for crying yourself to sleep, just have a cup of horlicks. Works for me
