Emissions failure rates of revised MOT

Recommended Posts

DVSA have today published information on how the failure rates of the revised MOT have changed. 

The MOT was revised from 20th May 2018, and DVSA have compared figures for the first six months (20th May 2018 to 19th November 2018) with the same period in 2017. The number of cars failing emissions tests has more than doubled.

744,592 cars failed emissions tests in 2018 compared to 350,472 for the same period in 2017. Since the changes were introduced if the MOT tester can see smoke of any colour coming from the exhaust, or finds evidence that the DPF has been tampered with, would result in a major fail.

505,721 petrol cars failed in 2018 (292,468 in 2017)

238,971 diesel cars failed in 2018 (58,004 in 2017)

19,648 diesel vans failed in 2018 (3,585 in 2017 - an increase of 448%)
