Here you'll find the most frequent ITV questions and their answers. If you don't find the answer to your questions, please go to ITV under Applus+ Iteuve at your service.

The law

The Spanish General Regulation on Vehicles (RGV), approved by Royal Decree 2822/1998 of 23 December 1998, under article 10 "Technical Vehicles Inspections", stipulates:

“Vehicles registered or put into circulation must undergo technical inspection in an ITV station authorized by the competent body for such purposes in accordance with the cases, frequency, and exemptions set out in Annex I”.

Royal Decree 2042/1994 of October 14, amended by Royal Decree 711/2006 of 9 June, sets the frequency with which vehicles must undergo the technical inspection, depending on the type of vehicle.

Scheduling the inspection visit

 

Scheduling a day and time is crucial for keeping wait times at the station to a minimum.

If the number of vehicles at the station without an appointment at that time is not too high, the vehicle may be inspected. If the number of vehicles at the station without an appointment at that time is not too high, the vehicle may be inspected. If there are too many, you may need to wait a while or request an inspection appointment on a later date or request an inspection appointment on a later date.

Business hours

If you received the appointment letter to undergo the ITV and you are no longer the owner of the vehicle because you sold it or there was a change of owner, you may disregard the letter and do not have to contact anyone. In other words, you do not need to do anything.

The database is updated automatically with the latest inspections carried out and only sends a notification when it detects that the inspection sticker is approaching its expiration date.

This database is independent of traffic authorities and therefore has no binding or punitive character.

Documentation

  • Technical sheet (ITV card).
  • Registration Certificate.
  • Mandatory auto insurance

Once the vehicle is subject to the mandatory Technical Inspection, it must always be current.

Technical specifications

La inspección técnica, una vez comprobada la identificación del vehículo, versará sobre las condiciones del vehículo relativas a seguridad vial, protección del medio ambiente, inscripciones reglamentarias, reformas y, en su caso, vigencia de los certificados para el transporte de mercancías peligrosas y perecederas, de acuerdo con el "Manual de procedimiento de inspección de las estaciones ITV" del Ministerio de Industria, Comercio y Turismo, el cual se puede consular en el siguiente enlace:
