MoT Data for West London

London areas generally score better than average and West London (W) post codes are no exception, although fewer cars were tested in W postcodes than in other London areas.

Much like elsewhere, premium manufacturers top the pass rate tables. Aston Martin, Bentley and Lexus take the top three spots, followed by Porsche and Jaguar.
