Mot Data for Nottingham

Nottingham is a fairly typical town when it comes to MoTs, with an overall pass rate that's about on par with the national average. The tables below feature a mixure of red and green numbers but most deviate very little from the national average rate. 

That said, the failure rates for suspension and brakes are around 20% higher than average in NG postcode areas compared with the national average. The best performing makers are Bentley, Porsche and Lexus - which isn't unusual. It's the same story at the bottom of the table with Rover, Renault and Daewoo.
