LED Failures and the new MoT rules

When it comes to cars with multiple small lights as sidelights - ie LEDS and daytime running lights - how many need to be working so as not to fail the new MOT?

All need to be. This will become a problem as individual LEDs of DRLs start to fail. Can mean having to replace an entire headlight assembly. DRLs best entirely separate from the headlights.
