Brake force distribution

Hey, in my country it is mandatory by law that you make an annual technical inspection by a third party (not the dealer).

I did mine today and in the observations section they wrote: Unbalanced brake force. Rear brakes force is between 15 and 20%. (So front brakes takes 80 to 85%).

I made a quick search and found no post talking about brake force distribution.

Does somebody knows if this is normal?

I did notice that the test was made first with the front wheels and then with the rear wheels, so I was thinking that maybe the EBD was having bad readings when the rear wheels started spinning and the front where not moving. The technician made me take the test 4 times, and even the hand brake was stronger.

That is pretty normal. Your front bias on any vehicle is more than half. If they failed it, I'd look for another inspection station.
