If you’re based in the city and booking your next MOT in Cardiff, it’s worth knowing that on average, almost 40% (39.4%) of vehicles here won’t make it through this 20-point, legally required test, meaning the Welsh capital has a rather higher failure rate than the UK average of 36.1%. Luckily, with Fixter you're in good hands - we're here to help you with your MOT.
Cardiff MOTs are most likely to fail based on lamps, reflectors and electrical equipment, with just over a fifth of the city’s motorists (20.1%) not passing for that reason, a figure that’s 13% higher than the national one of 17.8%.
Poor suspension is behind 14.2% of failures, 17% above the UK-wide average. Meanwhile, brakes will fail 11.6% of the city’s motorists, compared with 9.5% nationwide – meaning an even bigger gap of 22%.
Vehicles registered in 2000 experience Cardiff’s lowest overall pass rate, at just 41.7%, or 15% higher than the UK-wide figure for that year. However, the good news is that each year since then has seen a steady improvement in the city’s MOT pass rates.
While Daewoo, Talbot and Renault models have Cardiff’s highest MOT failure rates by manufacturer, marques with the best pass rates include Bentley, Dacia and, if you’re lucky enough to drive one, Aston Martin.
