Are parking sensors included in an MoT test?

Is it an MoT fail if the parking sensor system on a 2004 Mercedes-Benz C230 is inoperative? If you switch it on with the dashboard switch it stays on for a few seconds, then beeps and goes back to red.

Parking sensors are not a testable item under the MoT test; however, if the reversing light fails to illuminate due to this fault, the car will fail.
