do foglights have to work for a safety?

Nope. Headlights yes, but non-working foglights shouldn't cause a safety failure.

Not all cars come equipted with fogs. Just need driving lights and highs.
It really depends on the shop you take it to, and the inspecting technicians discression.
I've seen cars failed for having a small chip in the windshield, and others pass with a big crack... as long as it doesn't obstruct the drivers view.
I've recently been to the ministry refresher course, and was amazed at some of the stuff I heard.
For example: A car can pass the inspection without operating reverse lights, and of course, fogs.
I guess it pays to bring coffees for your techs :)

from what i was told a few years back, if you have fog lights on your car, they have to be in working condition in order to pass safety. again i could be wrong
