Will a car fail its MoT if the rear wiper doesn't work?

Do rear wipers have to work to pass an MoT?

The car will not fail the MoT if the rear wiper doesn't work. But I would still recommend fixing this, as it will improve rear visibility and make it easier to reverse the vehicle and see out of the back in wet conditions.
