As Renegade says,they're just advises.
A tester can advise anything on the vehicle that they see that doesn't fail the test,i.e if a tyres getting near the limit etc.
The new computerised MOT's allow the tester to print out an advise sheet,and this is an improvement over the old system where many garages just gave pass or fail certificates and made no note of any advises.If you ever go to see a car with intentions of buying it,always look at the MOT advise sheet,it will give you a far better idea of the general condition of the car than a pass certificate on it's own.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
