You need to drive it like you stole it every so often to burn those soot deposits. Do you consider yourself a gentle driver, I am and I've learnt that I need to give it some welly.

Had this problem with our old Vitara. After getting quoted similar price from Suzuki we ended up having it cut out and the vehicle remapped. Cost about £350 all in iirc and zero issues with MOT.

Never start the engine unless you're going to drive it.
Never start the engine to charge batteries
Never pottle along at 45 in 6th
Follow white van man's example and drive it hard, every time. Modern diesels need to be working at approximately 80% full power if at all possible.
On motorways, where possible and safe cruise at 70mph.

My local garage which can do van MOT's and servicing told me he'd never had any DPF issues with commercial vans, all the one's he regularly sees are motorhomes. If he sees emissions issues with one he takes up and down our bypass in 4th or 5th and drives it as hard as possible, that usually fixes the emissions problem!

I too learned that the hard way, just finished 3 weeks in Pyrenees and N Spain some on motorways, I can assure you my van won't have emissions problems next mot, just like it didn't last one! up!

Welcome to the forum. I don’t have the same issues with my older Transit but I have had one MOT fail because of emissions issues. It was one of those bad weeks so my normal routine of fuel additive and a motorway run wasn’t possible. It passed second try after a fifteen mile run at motorway speed. 
The emissions issue was always a problem when I was working on buses. We inherited a couple of Leyland Tigers that only did town runs. Before the MOT we were told to take them up the motorway in third gear to give them a pull through as our foreman put it. Yes it created a few minor oil leaks but they passed on emissions. 
I know we have to make an effort to clean up the environment but it can’t be right that we have to change our driving habits for the wrong reasons. We drive for pleasure not to a time tight schedule shrugg
