MoT Data for Falkirk and Stirling

Falkirk and Stirling (FK) falls in the lower half of the national table, with a below average overall pass rate. With a lot of twisting country roads in the FK postcode area it’s little surprise that failure rates for suspension and braking components are higher than average and steering suffers, too.

All registration years with the exception of 2011 are more likely to fail an MoT when tested in FK postcodes than elsewhere. Lexus tops the table as the most likely to pass, but just 297 were tested. The rest of the top table is made up of Porsche, Toyota, Audi and Kia.
