Is a flickering daytime running light an MoT failure?

The offside daytime running light on my 2016 Kia Cee'd intermittingly flickers. If this condition occurred during it's MoT would this be a failure?

Asked on by

Daytime running lamps (DRLs) are only inspected (as part of the MoT) if they’re fitted as original equipment to cars first used on or after 1 March 2018. In this case, the car will fail the MoT if the entire light (or more than half of the LEDs) are is faulty.
