However, drivers are found with an added problem since, at present, average to pass the technical inspection of the ITV in Mallorca exceeds three months due to huge accumulated delays. This fact causes many drivers do not come to pass mandatory ITV.

On the islands we can find vehicles 10 years old who have 100.000 kilometres, while in the peninsula where distances are longer, the average vehicle kilometers 10 years is 200,000″.
