MoT Data for Bradford

The MoT pass rate for Bradford is 56 per cent, which puts it near the bottom of the national table. Every major MoT test area that's examined performs worse than the national average except for seat belts. Worst of those is brakes, its 16.5 per cent failure rate is 50 per cent worse than than the national average.

Although most years of registration perform below the national average, older cars do better. Those registered in 1983 and 1984 are particularly good and are more than 20 per cent less likely than average to fail – though these cars only exist in very small numbers, so figures are easily skewed.

The manufacturer table lacks many of the luxury names - like Aston Martin and Bentley - that you often see elsewhere, but gives a good representation of mainstream models. Porsche, Chevrolet and Lexus top the table, though the numbers of cars being tested are only in the hundreds, with Rover, Renault and Daewoo at the bottom.

Bradford is below Cardiff and Bath in the overall national picture.
