MoT Files: Ten best postcode areas
One of the most surprising aspects to come out of The MoT Files is the amount of regional variations. You wouldn't have thought that the MoT test (and whether you pass or fail) would vary that much - but it does. Coastal and rural areas, with poorer roads and harsher weather, tend to have lower pass rates than more built up areas - see the list below for the ten worst postcode areas.
Truro is the capital of Cornwall and, like most Cornish and Devonshire postcode areas, it doesn’t have a particularly high MoT pass rate. Devon and Cornwall are both rural, with lots of moorland and coastal areas – both are unfriendly to cars.
