If my memory serves all motor vehicles are required to have two rear red
reflectors visable at distances of 100 - 600ft when illuminated by dipped
headlamps
you can check http://www.motuk.co.uk/mot_testing.htm
for the full details

Re: rear reflectors

Mine has just passed its MOT with both reflectors missing at the back
of my 90...Good fortune? Maybe, I asked no questions and drove off
with ticket in hand!

My friend had rectangle reflectors on his 110 which failed the MOT because
they weren't straight! Go for round ones!

some reflectors have a "top" marking.

Edward II has one original round reflector and one missing. Wonder if they
can be got...
