In an impressive demonstration of the focus placed on helping operators maintain ‘O’ licence compliance, the Volvo Trucks’ UK Dealer Network achieved a record 97.4% MOT first time pass rate in January 2014.

The record figure of 97.4% exceeds by 1.3% the previous highest monthly MOT first time pass rate of 96.1%, which was set in mid-2013.

The January 2014 figures also reveal that 43 of 71 (61%) of Volvo’s UK Dealerpoints achieved an MOT first time pass rate of 100% for the month.

Volvo’s MOT first time pass rate for 2013 full year was an industry-leading 94.9%. The Volvo Trucks’ UK Dealer Network carried out 17,975 MOT tests during 2013. A total of 1,554 tests were undertaken during January 2014.

Commenting on the impressive MOT first time pass rate achieved by the Volvo Trucks’ UK Dealer Network, Volvo Trucks’ Aftersales Director Tony Davis said that, “Together with our Dealers, we are focusing very hard on being our customer’s number one business partner. Compliance is a major issue in the transport industry and Volvo has solutions in place, like the 21 ATFs based at our Dealerpoints, to add value to our offer for our customers.”
