I don't see what the wing mirror lights have to do with the MOT.

MOT rules state that a front indicator must be visible when stood 3metres behind AND 1 metre to the side of the car.

Thats why you get your side repeaters in your wings.

But in newer cars instead of putting them in the wings they tend to go in the mirrors. If you disconnect that light then it can be argued that from a certain side angle no one could see you were indicating. Hence it will be an MOT failure.

Thats why you see all these blokes with flushed wings on the older cars struggling with MOT's. That light isnt just put there to be annoying to the driver/owner.
