Resum: A test for serial independence of regression errors is proposed that is consistent in the direction of serial dependence alternatives of first order. The test statistic is a function of a Hoeffding-Blum-Kiefer-Rosenblatt type of empirical process, based on residuals. The resultant statistic converges, surprisingly, to the same limiting distribution as the corresponding statistic based on true errors.
