Welcome to the forum. Yes you do. A engine management light is an immediate mot failure, so what else have they not picked up on? As to the light itself it's easy to buy a sub 20 quid code reader and get a code that will tell you what is wrong with it. It's also easy and cheap for a garage to do a code scan and tell you what is wrong. Either way I would be very unhappy about it having passed a test with the light on.

This was in response to a post regarding a Jimny that was running fine and had just recently been through the mot but had the eml warning light on and was wondering what the problem could be..

Sorry mate, i got it all wrong, checked all my records including MOT and it passed with flying colours..

Please do not judge someone who is new to driving and just new to having a Jimny, and just to say we all have to start some where. SO HELL IS WHERE I WILL START!

Cheers once again for what you said and i will not be returning!

Confused? You said initially that you had an issue with the vehicle having its engine light being on and that it was on during a mot test? Is it that the light has come on subsequently to the test?
