MoT Data for East London

East London is, much like the rest of London, a good place to pass an MoT, with an above average overall pass rate. The top two models are luxury cars – Bentley and Porsche – although few were tested. That said, most car makers have higher pass rates when tested in E postcodes than they do on average elsewhere in the UK.

Failures related to lighting and signalling account for almost a quarter of all MoT failures, so makes sure you check your bulbs. Other common problem areas are less likely to affect cars in E postcodes than they are elsewhere, though.
