MoT Data for Coventry

Coventry is in the upper half of the MoT pass rate table, with an overall pass rate of 62%. The usual problem areas are lighting and signalling, suspension and brakes, much like elsewhere in the country, but the failure rates or all are slightly lower than the national average.

Most registration years score a slightly above average pass rate, as do most manufacturers, although there are few significant deviations. Aston Martin and Lotus have the highest pass rates in CV postcodes, although relatively few were tested.
