Will my 2001 Volkswagen Passat pass the MoT test if the engine warning light is on steady and not flashing?

Will my 2001 Volkswagen Passat pass the MoT test if the engine warning light is on steady and not flashing? It has been on for several years with no effect on the car.

Asked on by

The engine warning light is an MoT fail, but only for newer vehicles. Diesels that were registered before July 2008 and petrols that were registered before July 2003 are exempt from this rule.

A better drive and better equipped than the previous Passat. Comfortable and has more status than, say, a Ford Mondeo.
