After motorized two-wheelers, the government intends to introduce technical inspections for cars without a license. The measure is mandatory from 2024 for all engines.
The technical inspection for cars without a license is coming
The introduction of technical inspection for unlicensed cars in 2024 represents a significant change for their owners. They will now have to plan and anticipate this control to remain in compliance with the law. This new regulation requires owners of vehicles registered before 2017 to submit them to a first inspection before the end of 2024, followed by a frequency of every three after an initial period of five years. Then, the schedule is staggered in the same way as the technical inspection for two wheels. The control will be very meticulous on safety aspects but also from an environmental point of view. Thus, it could incur additional charges for repairs or modifications necessary to pass inspection. Additionally, owners will need to familiarize themselves with specific checkpoints, including speed limits and noise. Important clarification: it concerns both thermal and electric cars.-
Change during sale
Compliance with these new requirements is crucial. In the event of an unfavorable technical inspection, the owners will have two months to carry out a second inspection. Non-compliance may result in restrictions on vehicle use, particularly in the event of critical faults. Regular maintenance and increased vigilance over the condition of the vehicle will therefore be necessary from now on. For unlicensed car sellers, this change also implies the need to provide a technical inspection report dated less than six months ago when selling to an individual. This obligation could influence the second-hand market, by valuing well-maintained and compliant vehicles.
