Can a car fail an MOT on rust?

Is bodywork damage an MOT failure?

Any of these points which display corrosion or thinning of the panels can fail an MOT and will require qualified repair. Any accident damage can be permissible providing that sharp edges are protruding and that any damage has not affected the structural integrity of the car.

Does body damage affect mot?

Although bodywork is checked during the MOT test, it only matters if there's excessive corrosion, sharp edges or damage to specific areas of the vehicle. So long as the door opens and closes properly, a dent in the wing won't cause your car to fail.
