Around 10-20% of cars on UK roads exceed emission limits, according to a National Audit Office report. 1 The NAO estimates that testing reduces emissions from about a quarter of cars each year, resulting in "a significant reduction in polluting emissions". But it adds that "passing an annual test alone cannot stop vehicles exceeding legal limits in everyday use."
