MoT Data for Lerwick

Lerwick has one of the poorest pass rates in the country, but given its remote location and how exposed to the elements cars are in ZE postcodes, it’s not a big surprise.

It’s also worth noting that very few cars were tested in the remote ZE postcode area – many registration years and manufacturers don’t even appear in the tables below.
