Chances are it is a worn anti roll bar drop link and maybe it was not bad enough to fail the MOT or was missed. You could see if the link can be moved by hand or by using a lever but the best way to check is to undo one end of the link and if worn there will be a lot of play in one or both of its joints.

one of 3 things drop link seems the easiest option but if you are turning steering wheel may lead to other things, CV tends to click out on steering not so much on driving so can most probably rule that out. 
Spring will knock in both instances so would put that at the top of the list, sad thing about springs is you can pass an mot and it snap on the way home :( 
Drop link usually sounds like a knocking exhaust and are prone to fail quite often.
