Motorcycle MOT: reasons for failure in Great Britain (UK) 2007-2018 Lighting and signaling issues were the most common reasons for motorcycles to fail their Ministry of Transport (MOT) test in Great Britain. In 2017/18, 9.5 percent of all motorcycles were unable to meet the standards set by the annual test due to lighting and signaling problems. In total, 25.6 percent of motorcycles had initially failed the MOT test that year. All motorcycles older than three years are required to complete the annual test for a fee of 29.65 British pounds.
Car MOT test failures

Irregularities with lighting and signaling were also the most common issue for passenger cars when undergoing the MOT test. However, the share of cars afflicted was nearly double that of motorcycles. This was also indicative of the overall share of cars failing the test, which stood at nearly 62 percent in 2017/18.

1.24m registered motorcycles

As of 2018, there were roughly 1.24 million motorcycles registered in the United Kingdom. Despite an initial increase from 2000 onwards, by 2007 figures had stayed relatively constant throughout the years with no significant lows or peaks recorded.
