What does the test contain?
The mandatory roadworthiness test consists of two parts, one is concerned with traffic safety and the other one the environment.
- The part that addresses traffic safety includes testing of lights, visibility, wheels, safety belts and brakes.
- The environment part measures noise and exhaust gas emissions.
It is not necessary to bring both sets of tyres to the test site. If the car has summer tyres, you do not have to bring your winter tyres.
When the test is completed, you will receive an inspection sheet with the result. Here you can find information such as the registered odometer reading, your next test deadline, and any defects and deficiencies. Read more about passing and failing the roadworthiness test.
About the mandatory roadworthiness test
The purpose of the mandatory roadworthiness test is to make our entire vehicle fleet safer and more environmentally friendly. Remember that the mandatory test is not a complete survey of the condition of a vehicle. Operational reliability and incipient corrosion, for example, are not covered by this test. If you are buying or selling a vehicle, you should get a complete technical report. See our tips for buyers and sellers.
The mandatory roadworthiness test must be carried out by approved testers and garages. It is therefore important that you find an approved garage.
