Automobile Inspections

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Since 1 January 1995, a safety inspection is required every two years for gasoline and diesel vehicles over four years old. The inspection includes carbon monoxide emissions (gasoline) and exhaust fumes (diesel). Repairs are mandatory for vehicles that fail pollutant emission tests. The inspections are thought to increase fuel efficiency by improving the tuning of automobile engines to pass the emissions tests.
