Should a 2003 diesel fail its MoT for the MIL not illuminating with the ignition?

No, it's only necessary to check the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp) fitted to diesel cars and vans first used on or after 1 July 2008.

Return to the MoT testing station and inform them they've made an error. If they refuse to correct the mistake, take your complaint to the DVSA: you have 28 days to make a complaint and it will offer you an appointment within five days to recheck your vehicle. You do not need to pay anything extra for this.
