Re: Reflective tape - MOT Legal

The MOT testers manual states and I quote:-

"Reflective tape is not acceptable as a substitute for a rear reflector."

See link below

I don't believe the aproved marking is checked during MOT but I think reflectors fitted to new cars must comply with a particular British Standard or EU approval type.
