MoT Data for Southall

Southall (UB) lies within the M25 and, as with other London postcodes, it scores a slightly above average MoT pass rate. Most of the data in the table is marked in green, which means a rate that's better than the national average.

The most common cause of an MoT failure is lighting and signalling like most of the country and, in UB areas, the failure rate for it is 10 per cent higher than the average elsewhere - but the rest of the common causes table shows below average failure rates.

Most of the numbers in the pass rate by year of registration table are green too, showing a higher than average pass rate. It's the same story in the manufacturer table, where the best manufacturer is Bentley, followed by Porsche. The best manufacturer with more than 1000 models tested is Land Rover in third place.
