MoT Data for Blackpool

Figures for MoTs in the Blackpool postcode area (FY) follow the trend of coastal towns performing worse than those further inland.

Failure rates for all but one the common areas are higher than average - and the only one with a below average failure rate deviates just 1% from the national average. 

The overall age of cars is lower than the national average and from 1995 backwards MoTs are in three figures. Newer cars - those registered in 2010, 2009 and 2008 - are more likely than the national average to pass their MoT. Toyotas perform particularly well, as do Porsches, Chevrolets and Hondas, though overall it's a mixed picture for manufacturers.

Blackpool is toward the lower half of the national table, between Kilmarnock and Bournemouth. The overall pass rate for Blackburn MoTs is 58 per cent.
