First-rate ITV service

Before the inspection:

The main objective of the ITV inspection is to check that the vehicle's general condition and vehicle safety features are kept in minimum maintenance conditions to allow this vehicle to continue driving without representing a danger to the occupants or to any other person or item on the road. Nowadays there are also checks to ensure the vehicle meets the minimum requirements of environmental protection.

When you come in for an inspection at an Applus+ Iteuve station, you get your ITV inspection while receiving the best service and ensuring that your car meets the necessary levels of safety and environmental protection for responsible driving.
