Areas of inspection and the most common grounds for rejectionWe want your car to pass the inspection. However, statistics show that we are forced to reject one in four cars.
Inspections are done according to legislation, which defines the areas for inspection. If you want to make sure your car will pass, then check that the following issues are in order (in addition to the compulsory payments and insurances):
