    MOT Pass - Major Advisories

    MOT Pass - Major Advisories 11th Jun 19 at 5:12 PM
    Hello,

    I am looking for some advise,

    I took my car for MOT before the expiry of previous MOT and it has passed the test, though i noticed there are advisories on the certificate, which reads

    Brake pipe corroded, covered in grease or other material (both rear) & (offside front) [1.1.11 c]

    When i googled this 1.1.11 c, it says Major and description of major category is repair immediately.

    Do you think it is still safe to drive, if it is major or should be replaced immediately?

    Thank you for your help.

    I don't think so, I would imagine a few major accidents would need to happen at the point of failure, several people would need to have lost their lives and be all over the news for that to happen.

    That one is ready to go, not mine but looked similar to what I uncovered ^^^^^

    A while ago, I replaced all the brake pipes on my car with a single circuit braking system with kunifer pipes.

    I don't expect to have to replace it in my lifetime.
