can someone clear this up for me. a day MoT, I thought it needed a brake light and indicators and a horn. the rest it did not.
I have just read something that says you only need a horn, I cannot believe that for a second because how would traffic behind know your stopping!
you give hand signals for indicating and braking, as indicated in the high way code
I’ve got one on a fighter, and you only need a brake light, and signals if the controls has a switch.
Got a call about this today so if it was you this is direct from
the Vosa book.
This inspection applies to: all machines, except those which have neither front nor rear position lamps, or have such lamps permanently disconnected, painted over or masked that are
· only used during daylight hours, and
· not used at times of seriously reduced visibility
If this situation occurs the machine presenter should be issued with a VT32 (advisory notice) recording the above.
Hope this helps
nope wasn’t me was something I was reading.

also horn thats it.
I’m pretty sure the only real requirements are a horn and kill switch, providing the switch gears are blanked off or removed.
The horn does have to work but you dont need a kill switch.
I would have thought that was a necessity? What about one of those squeezy horns? Honk-Honk?
Haha this is from our mot bible
An audible warning device is usually an electrical horn. A horn is defined as an instrument, not being a bell, gong or siren, capable of giving audible and sufficient warning of the approach or position of a vehicle.
A motor bicycle first used before 1 August 1973 may be fitted with a bulb horn.
