For a brake to fail an MOT,wear wise,it has to be absolutely knackered......i.e worn to a dangerously low level.You'd be surprised just how bad they can be and still pass the test.We are not allowed to remove the wheels to check the brakes for the MOT.If you are only getting a squealing noise,then it is not wear that is causing it.

Good luck for the 8th,and if they can't solve it,I have a few ideas that might.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
