MoT Data for Newcastle Upon Tyne

Newcastle’s MoT performance is fairly typical of the rest of the UK, with an average overall pass rate and a mixture of red and green numbers in the tables below.

There are a couple of things that stand out, though. The failure rates for brakes and for steering are quite a lot higher than the national average, though it’s only possible to speculate why. The best performing makers are Bentley, TVR and Lotus, with fourth place Porsche the best maker with more than 1000 models tested.
