question about the "day only" M.O.T

A place to bang on about subjects close to your heart that affect us all as 400cc riders. general banter is rife, however rudeness and abuse seem to be the norm, If a bit wet round the ears best go play elsewhere. Auto pruning of items 31 days and older

question about the "day only" M.O.T

Hello

we don't have anything like the day only MOT in France.
We were talking with a friend, who is a cop here.
I asked him "uhm, there is a Day Time only MOT in england, wich allow a bike without headlight to ride during the day, what happen if they come in france?"
he could not answer.

can anyone tell me? Are you allowed to leave UK and ride in another country with a Daylight only MOT? the headligh MUST BE on in France, how can you deal with that?

thanks

tom4, just curious

I think that the french law would supersede the UK law in this respect.

Daytime MOT needs a horn and a reflector only. No lights. However, you can run a brake light, taped up - and use it with safety in mind.
