The purpose of the vechicle inspection for roadworthiness test is to ensure that the vehicle is in a safe and environmentally friendly condition for road use. A properly maintained vehicle in good working order and meeting all safety requirements is less likely to be involved in a road accident.
Incorrect set-up and inadequate maintenance not only damage the engine, but also the environment, causing increased pollution and fuel consumption. A sub-standard vehicle increases the likelihood of road accidents.
When you come in for a roadworthiness test, take your vehicle registration certificate with you, which will be endorsed after the test. If you are coming for a re-inspection, you will also need to take the previous inspection card.

The inspector will check the following items in the passenger compartment:
If any of the above is found to be not in conformity, the fault must be rectified and a re-inspection carried out. If necessary, our experienced technicians will review and explain the faults found. It is important to us that our customers’ cars are in good condition and safe to drive.
At our service points, there is a comfortable customer waiting area where customers can feel at ease during the service. The waiting area is located at a safe distance (about 5 metres) from the vehicle inspection, but at the same time you can always keep an eye on your car.
In addition to the regular roadworthiness test, we can also carry out a technical inspection, on request, of individual components: brakes, suspension, lights, exhausts, shock absorbers.
It is a good idea to have a roadworthiness test carried out if you hear/feel unusual noises/behaviour on the car, or before buying or selling the vehicle.
As a new service, we have added a paint thickness measurement, which provides information on the quality of a possible post-crash paint job.Book a time
