MoT Data for The Outer Hebrides

The Outer Hebrides, right in the north of Scotland and exposed to the Atalantic, doesn't do too badly in the grand scheme of things, with a fairly average overall pass rate. That said, the common failure items table reveals that braking and steering related problems cause significantly more failures in HS postcodes than in the average town.

The sample size for HS postcodes is smaller than in most areas thanks to the sparse population density. That means the manufacturer and registration year tables contain fewer numbers - only Ford, Renault and Vauxhall had more than 1000 models tested.
