MoT Data for Wakefield

Wakefield isn't a particularly outstanding for MoT pass rates. The most common cause for a failure is lighting and signalling, though it affects 3 per cent fewer cars in WF areas than on average across the nation. The same can't be said for suspension and brakes though, which are 12 and 15 per cent more problematic here than on average, respectively. 

Top of the manufacturer table is Triumph, but very few were tested. The best performing maker with more than 1000 models tested was Audi, with a pass rate 6 per cent above the national average for Audi models.
