It’s hard to believe but according to statistics the area you live in could dictate whether or not you pass your MOT. Harsher conditions appear to be associated with lower pass rates, with coastal towns incurring the most MOT failures. The lowest three postcodes are Dundee, Lerwick and Kirkcaldy – which happen to all be Scottish coastal towns.
The good news is you don’t have to become a statistic. There are a few regular checks that you can do to increase the chances of your vehicle passing its MOT. It all comes down to one thing – the roadworthiness of your vehicle. According to Honest John, “the most common fault, as with most areas, is lighting and signalling”. A simple check to make sure your bulbs are in good working condition can be the difference between passing and failing an MOT.
“Motorists in London are more likely than those in any other part of the UK to fail their MOT as a result of simple, easy-to-fix, issues such as blown bulbs, worn tyres and cracked windscreens” (www.tyrepress.com). If you need help determining whether or not your car is roadworthy enough, call into your local Concorde Auto Centre for a scheduled service from only £60.
An article on the Guardian has revealed that some of the top pass rates based on manufacturer are Nissan, Honda, BMW, and Audi, alongside the top ranking models at the luxury end of the market with Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Aston Martin.
Honest John has revealed that Leicester, Peterborough and Cambridge are towards the top of the national table for pass rates, which could be in part thanks to local repair and service centres, such as Concorde whose specialist technicians and modern technology can get your car fixed and back on the road in no time.

"Excellent service from start to finish. Highly recommend.They'd forgotten to include something in the quote, and charged for it virtually free, fast, efficient, stupendous value for money and courteous service. And, if you are a woman, virtually every other car place in Peterborough talks to either your husband/partner/random male with you or to your 'chest area' which I hate with a passion - Concorde people seem to appreciate that a grown woman (even a none technical rather dim one!) has the nouse to own a car, and more importantly, pay the bill!!Incidentally, while I was picking my car up, there was an incredibly rude and unreasonable customer giving one of the guys a really hard time and the way he (the concorde employee) dealt with it was very impressive customer service (I'd have lost my cool, but he was ultra professional the whole way) "
