Noticed the other day when I had my cup on the ramp that there was oil residue around the bottom. Looks to be the rocker cover has been leaking at some point and has either miraculously fixed its self or is leaking very little. It’s been in the garage for nearly 2 months and I haven’t noticed a single drop on the floor.

Will this pass an MOT ?

Shouldn't be a problem, for a fail it has to be making a certain size of puddle within a certain length of time, all specified in the MOT testers booklet and checked during the time of the test itself.

My old Skoda has never not had an oil leak.....even when the engine has been rebuilt it bloody leaks and it has never failed. The worst its had is an advisory for it.

The fail is for something like a 75mm puddle forming over the course of a number of minutes. That's not really a leak, it is a haemorrhage.

So you should be fine.
