you can pull the fuse to the ABS - but then light will not come on at start up - depends if MOT guy notices it.

or you could look at your front ABS sensors - likely to be crud stuck to the sensors - 8mm socket, undo bolt, clean metal off sensor (magnetic - but don't use emery cloth - just wipe) and pop them back in and see if that sorts it ;)

Cut the wire to the abs light on the back of the dash, then re-wire through the low fuel warning light. It will come on when you put your key in the ignition, then go out (as long as you've fuel in the tank). One ABS self check complete and MOT pass ;)
