The speedometer gets it's signal from a VSS (vehicle speed sensor) it could be a fault on the sensor or wiring. This would not affect the MOT. Vehicles are not driven during the MOT so the tester would not even know it is not working. Unless you are really unlucky. But I must advise to have it repaired. If it is picked up on during the test. It will fail !
