Do I need a Rear Cat on 147 - for MOT

My rear catalytic convertor has failed (broken up inside). I have removed all the broken up stuff from inside. Will the car be ok with just the front cats or will it need the rear cat replacing to pass it's MOT?

Might pass, might not, depends how efficient your remaining cats are.. I would put it through a test and find out, if it fails you can get a good 2nd hand cat and get it re-tested.
