MOT Test Insights
The MOT Test Insights report has been extended to to show insights that focus on a chosen vehicle make. It also includes a new page for analysing MOT test results based on when the testing occurred.
Analyse MOT Test Results for a Vehicle Make
While analysing MOT test result trends and patterns across all vehicle makes, you may want to focus further analysis on a single vehicle make. We have streamlined this analysis scenario by including a drill-through path to a page where all the trends and patterns are focused on your vehicle make selection. You can use this to extract insights that are specific to one or more vehicle models.

Quickly Analyse MOT Test Timings
Is there a correlation between the day of the week that an MOT test is taken and the first-time pass rate?
How does the relationship between the day of the week and the first-time pass rate changes over time?
We have introduced a new report page that makes it possible to quickly answer these type of questions with the flexibility to report on this by postcode area and test class, similar to the other report pages.
