    nope doesnt need a rear wiper for mot as its not part of the test. not all cars come with a rear wiper fitted as standard.

    As above, can think of a few examples where cars haven't got rear wipers.

    Firstly, coupes don't have a rear wiper.

    GazTD "de-wipered" his old VXR, I also believe that redhotpanther (aKa Paul) also hasn't got a wiper on his sporthatch.

    And the new style Honda Civics don't have rear wipers either.

    So in answer to your question, yes you can de-wiper and yes will pass a MOT.

    I think as long as you put a grommet over the hole then it will be fine.

    If it's fitted it has to work, if it aint then it aint.
