MoT Data for Stoke-on-Trent

Stoke-on-Trent doesn't perform well when it comes to MoTs. Most of the numbers are red, which indicates below average pass rates more or less across the board. Some areas perform significantly below the national average, including suspension and brakes.

The best performing maker is Lexus, followed by Porshe, Triumph and Smart. Triumph hasn't been producing cars since 1984, which means the majority of those left are classics and treated as second cars, which could explain its high pass rate.
