It’s hard to believe but according to statistics the area you live in could dictate whether or not you pass your MOT.

The lowest three postcodes are Dundee, Lerwick and Kirkcaldy – which happen to all be Scottish coastal towns.

"It was the second I have been at Concorde Auto Centre. Both times were good visits. They have been accommodating. The fact that they have a waiting room with tables to work on with my laptop is very, very helpful. I am able to work whilst waiting. I will definitely be back for either of our cars next year for our MOTs. Many thanks!!!"
