Admin link: Top 10 reasons for failing your MoTAdmin link: Top 10 Sub-£2,000 track bikesThis must have been asked numerous times, but i've done a search & can't find any threads on this.My trackbike was bought with a daylight MOT, it has a working horn & speedo but no lights or indicators, the fella I purchased it from was pretty adamant this is legal.I've had a look @ www.motuk.co.uk but it doesn't really (to me) answer in a straight forward manner, do you need a rear brake light or not & does it have to function with front & rear levers.What I do know is that it seems to depend on where you have the MOT done, some testers don't even know you can have one.I can also imagine that old bill would constantly be on ya case Anyone got any info or experinace on this? I don't ride on the road much now but it would be nice every so often on a sunny sunday
im an mot tester and your bike has to have ALL the lights or NONE of the lights, and it doesnt need a horn or mirrors either for a daylight mot
im an mot tester and your bike has to have ALL the lights or NONE of the lights, and it doesnt need a horn or mirrors either for a daylight mot. but it does need a full size number plate, helps keep the feds at bay. ive got a daylight use only r6 and ive never been pulled even in wales!!!
Last time this came up, I found a link somewhere that said that the bike needed a working horn.Colin, not an mot tester

You DO need both a reflector and stoplight, see MoT testers manual here There may be more, suggest you read it and see for yourself - especially section on exhausts.
I'm gonna get a scanner later and post the OFFICIAL testers manual to clear all this bickering up!
I have just put my bike on the road with a day time only MOT.The MOT station made me fitt :-a) a rear light to work off both leversb) a full size # plate with reflectorc) horn
