Brake lights and wof

can a car still pass the wof if one of the brake lights are not working!

NO! some inspectors will be nice and offer to replace at cost of bulb and pass you. others just plain arseholes. just check all the basics before you take it in. saves the hassle especially with likes of a bulb.

Generally no. if it is a high stop that is comprised of multiple LED's then some can be not working but it has to meet a percentage requirement

Not their fault you've presented them with a non compliant vehicle that you are asking them to certify is compliant.They're under no obligation to fix anything, there are reasons other than blown bulbs that cause lights not to work.

Good business taking those two minutes to replace a bulb. They will come back next time.

"Must have just gone out, it was working when I left home." I'll bet AVIs hear those words on a regular basis.

Have done the pre-wof checks & had it happen on the way TO a wof.
Both brake lights doa.
Another day lost a number plate light & a tail light when checked at home.

WAS found to be a broken earth wire in the tailgate a bit later

It does happen, light bulbs give no warning they are going to blow.

Yes. But it depends on which one.
