MoT Data for Paisley

Scotland isn’t very kind to cars – most of the lowest pass rates are in Scottish areas and Paisley, just outside of Glasgow, while not the very worst area in which to have an MoT test, is far from the best.

The top three causes for a failure are the same as in most other areas, but both suspension and brakes have increased failure rates in PA over the national average.

The rest of the tables show plenty of red numbers, meaning below average performance for most registration years and most car makers. Very few pre-1990 cars were tested, again showing just how harsh Scottish weather takes its toll on vehicles.
