Abstract

Mathematical and computational techniques are developed for the processing
and analysis of annual Ministry of Transport roadworthiness (MOT) test data
that the UK Department for Transport has placed in the public domain. First,
techniques are given that clean erroneous records and a linking procedure is
provided that permits the inference of an individual vehicle’s mileage between
consecutive tests. Methods are then developed that analyse aggregate mileage
totals, as a function of vehicle age, class and geography. The inference of
aggregate mileage rates as a function of time is then considered.
