It can't fail with the airbag light on with a standard wheel.

But an aftermarket wheel with air bag light on im unsure.

to be honest u can jump the srs wiring that used to fit the old steering wheel with a small fuse to turn the light off.

i was also under the impression that the srs light being on is an mot fail.

nothin illegal about not having an airbag, just make sure u inform the insurance, as they may not cover the car if the airbag has been removed :)

that would mean that cars that didn't have airbags as standard would fail their MOTs lol

he was making a point that if it was illegal to not have an airbag, all non airbag cars would be illegal, same as when people ask "is not illegal not to carry a spare wheel"
