MOT Data Trends

MOT Data Trends is a collection of reports built with Power BI, using public data available from the government.
Our goal is to build a tool that will provide insights from the data that are useful to everyone in the motor industry. 

These reports are currently in beta. The data, calculations, or visualisations may be incorrect. 

The reports are based on 2021 MOT data.
