MoT for Dumfries

Dumfries (DG) is unusual in that it’s one of few Scottish areas with slightly above average overall performance. There’s almost a clean sheet in the model years table, with the only a few blemishes caused by cars from the 1990s.

Similarly, most of the manufacturer table is green, with just a few car makers scoring below average scores and even then not significantly so. Lexus, Honda and Audi are the manufacturers with the highest pass rates in DG areas.
