MoT Data for Glasgow

Glasgow follows the trend for Scottish postcodes, with a below average MoT pass rate. Common failure items are more problematic here and cars from most years show below average pass rates.

It’s the same story with manufacturers, with a few exceptions – including the anomalous pass rate for Triumph models, which are the least likely to fail of all makes tested in Glasgow, although just 103 were tested.
