The handbrake on my BMW passed the MOT twice, but frequently

Customer Question

The handbrake on my BMW passed the MOT twice, but frequently it will not hold on a slope.
I had a hairy escape in a multistorey car park going up the ramp when the car in front was forced to stop. Even my mechanic is puzzled as it did it to him on a test drive.
Any ideas?
Thanks.
