The 20-point MOT test is required by law. But there’s good news for motorists based in Birmingham – the city’s failure rate of 32% is well below the UK-wide average of just over 36%.
As in many other parts of Britain, Brummie drivers are most likely not to pass based on their lamps, reflectors and electrical equipment (responsible for 16.8% of failures in the city). Suspension will let down almost one in 10 of the area’s drivers, and brakes just over 7%, while a whisker over 3% will need to look again at their exhaust, fuel and emissions.
But on all three cause of failure, again Birmingham’s drivers fared consistently better than their counterparts in the rest of the UK.
If you drive a Rover, Daewoo or SsangYong, these manufacturers have the city’s highest MOT failure rates. Conversely, if you’re fortunate enough to be at the wheel of a Ferrari, Rolls Royce or Aston Martin, you can look forward to some of Birmingham’s best MOT pass rates.
Cars registered in 2000 faced the region’s lowest overall MOT pass rate at 56.5%, which still compares favourably with 49.1% of registrations from that year nationally. (However, failure rates by year of registration have declined slowly but surely year on year over nearly two decades since).
