Hi Shirley - I don't know what the standards are like for the MOT in the UK mainland but over here in Northern Ireland your car would fail - the testers here take the view that if a door can't be opened the passengers can't escape in the event of an emergency or those coming to their assistance would be hampered in any rescue attempt. I have even seen vehicles fail because the drivers window won't open - the say the driver would be unable to give hand signals should the indicators fail. Yeh it gets crazy sometimes.
