MoT Data for Truro

Truro’s tables are, on the whole, filled with red numbers, which indicate below average performance. All the common problem areas have higher than average failure rates on cars tested in TR postcodes- some significantly.

It’s the same with almost all registration years and manufacturers, too, though a few makers manage to beat their national average when tested in TR areas. The cars with the highest pass rates are Porsche, Smart and Lexus.
