If theres no fixings for a mirror then you dont need one.

On Lemon I plated over the fixings so it no longer has any mirrors on the outside.



Been through the MOT for over 7yrs like it.

If there is a fixing for a mirror on ure passenger side, then yes you may need one. Check with ure MOT tester.

Just read the MOT site says:

The Testers Manual
8.1 Mirrors
Information

Method of Inspection

Reason for rejection
Obligatory mirrors
Obligatory mirrors are
a. an exterior mirror fitted to the offside (right-hand side when seated in the
drivers seat), or

b, an exterior mirror fitted to the
nearside fleft hand side when seated In the drivers seat), or

c. an interior mirror.


so yeah, you only need the one mirror, but might be wise to cover/fill any other mirror mounting area, as already stated.

No

You missed the most important bit, that comes next on that page:

Passenger vehicles with no more than 7 passenger seats first used before 1 August 1978 must have any one of the above options.

Passenger vehicles with more than 7 passenger seats of any age, and all passenger vehicles first used on or after I August 1978 (not being a minibus as above), must have two mirrors, one of which must be option 'a'.​
