Changes to Spain's MOT / ITV Procedures

Tue 20th Apr 2010

Changes to the ITV/MOT legislation in Spain which comes into effect on May 1 means that cars which are found to have failed their MOT, or do not hold a valid certificate, will still be able to use the roads for a ten day period of grace. The driver will have to present the car for testing during the ten days, and will still have to pay a 150 Ä fine.

The change has been decided on as under the current system where the carís permission to be on the roads was removed, delays often occurred when it was time to be returned.

Currently ITV stations are failing one in five vehicles presented for not being roadworthy or for emitting more exhaust gases than permitted.
