Mot Data for Oldham

The tables for Oldham feature a lot of red numbers, which spells bad news if your MoT is due and you live in an OL postcode area. There are very few criteria in which you can expect a better than average result, with all but one of the most common causes for a failure scoring higher fail rates on cars tested in OL areas.

The manufacturer and year-of-registration tables are a bit better, with a few more above average performances. The top of the manufacturer table is familiar with Porsche, Lexus, BMW and Audi taking the top four spots, followed by Suzuki.
