YES

I know of a few road legal cars with no lights, and some with no wings.

You can get a daylight only MOT.



There is an Austin 7 ulster, used for racing, on the road near Colchester.

No wings, No Lights, the only concession for MOT is an audible warning device.

He has a push bike bulb horn clipped on the scuttle to comply with the MOT

Hmm think this might be quite popular when its on the road but no progress as yet I'm afraid tho I have sold a couple of cars and I'm making really good progress with getting two more on the road and after them this is the only project left so hopefully fingers crossed big updates next year but it was always going to be a long term project.
