Operate the hazard switch a few times and check the indicators still work. The MOT man will :wink:

Best to get one of the electronic units....easy to fit and very much more reliable and work even with dying battery!

If its's the one in your signature (your picture is a bit big by the way.. ;)) then a 5a one is clipped to the A pillar area, just above the bonnet release (along with the Hazard flasher and low fuel unit).
