Will a warning light cause my car to fail the MOT?

I've got a Freelander 2 with the airbag light permanently on. Will it be an MOT failure? Also, will it fail if it doesn't light up at all? Thanks.

If the warning light indicates that the driver's airbag is inoperative then the car will fail the MoT. A passenger airbag that is switched off is not an MoT defect.
