MoT Data for Hull

Hull’s tables are full of red numbers, which spells bad news for car owners in HU postcodes. Almost all of the common areas tested have higher failure rates than the average when tested in Hull, and pass rates for almost all model years and manufacturers are below average.

The best performing models are also among the rarest – little over 100 Triumphs were tested and none of the top five are into quadruple figures – which means smaller sample sizes and more deviation from the national average. The best performing manufacturer with more than 1000 models tested in Hull postcodes is Audi.
