    I guess as long as the bulbs are working, you should be ok.

    I think any defect is illegal... if police see it they will probably pull you over. Don't expect much would happen in the way of punishment (unless you've been caught before for similar offences), you'd get told off and given a form that has to be stamped by the MOT centre to say it's been fixed and then returned to the police station.

    in the point of view of the police: 'it wouldn't pass an MOT with a light like that, therefore should not be on public roads'. police can be right wankers if they wanna be!

    sayin that, once, me and my mates was smokin up in a car, n a marked police car came in to the car park and told us to leave quickly!, he didn't take no drugs or even our names (y)

    it's illegal. Can't show any white lights to the rear (apart from reverse) to be legal.
