Unhappy Parking Brake and Brake lamp out light(URGENT)

Hi guys,
I got in the car this afternoon after previously driving it before and for some reason the parking brake and brake lamp out light stays on whilst driving. I checked the reservoir and all the lights their is also fair brake pressure and we had the brakes them selves checked in an inspection a couple weeks ago. Anyone have any ideas on how i can fix it?
Regards

Check the bases of the bulbs in the brakelamps. When they get worn down and are flattened out some, it can cause a false short, making the light come on. The bulb itelf is still good, and works, but the contact points have a higher level of resistance, making the car think the bulb is out. If any of the nubs on the bottom of the bulbs look worn, repace them and see if the problem goes away.

Maybe the light is just stuck on? It could be as simple as that. I had my Brake lamp light on, and had a light out. I fixed it and its still on.
