Almost 1.3m cars failed MOT emissions checks last year

The introduction of new emissions checks as part of the updated MOT test has seen a spike in UK vehicles automatically flunk the assessment due to what is coming out of their exhausts.

Almost 1.3 million vehicles in total failed MOTs for emissions in the previous 12 months, which is 70 per cent higher than before the tougher checks were put in place in May 2018.

And it’s diesel cars that are suffering the most, with over 420,000 being pulled up on emissions in 2019/20 – up 240 per cent on 2017/18, research has revealed.
