MoT Data for Luton

The overall pass rate in Luton areas is above average. Failure rates for all of the key areas are lower than average and it’s the same story for most of the numbers in the other tables too.

That said, newer models tended to perform worse than the national average. Every other year has a higher than average MoT pass rate, and most manufacturers do well in Luton. Porsche, Subaru, Triumph and Lexus top the table for pass rates, but the best manufacturer with more than 1000 models tested is Toyota.
