Will a faulty TPMS system cause my car to fail the MoT?

Can you tell me if a faulty tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an MoT failure point?

Is the TPMS light illuminated? If so, it can mean a number of things (depending on the car).

The MoT tester will only fail the vehicle if it’s clear that the lamp indicates a TPMS system malfunction and not simply indicating that one or more of the tyre pressures is low.

Do you have an opinion on tire pressure monitoring kits? If so, do you recommend any particular make?
Are aftermarket tyre pressure monitoring systems safe and how much do they cost?
