Vehicle Inspection FAQ
Does the vehicle owner need to be present at the mandatory inspection?

Not necessarily, provided that all the necessary documents are valid and have been submitted.

What documents are necessary for a mandatory inspection?
For sedans, please bring the vehicle registration and the motor insurance certificate, which must be valid for at least 30 days. For other types of vehicles, please bring the new license plate registration.
My stolen car has been found, and I want to renew the license plate registration. Why am I required to undergo another mandatory inspection?
According to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, found stolen vehicles must be inspected before they can be used again. Therefore, when a stolen car is found, the owner should bring the vehicle registration, the new license plate registration, the motor insurance certificate valid for at least 30 days, and the found stolen vehicle certificate issued by the police, to apply for a new inspection by the motor vehicle authorities. The vehicle must pass the inspection before the owner can apply to use the found vehicle or change its registration.
Why is it necessary to submit the basic liability insurance card in the mandatory inspection?

According to Article 16 of the "Compulsory Automobile Liability Insurance Act", vehicle owners who apply for the automobile liability insurance shall apply for the insurance to an insurer when applying for new license plate registration and temporary harbor pass for each and every vehicle, or before the expiration of the current policy. The motor vehicle authorities shall not issue new license plate registration or temporary harbor pass; or renew license plate registration; or accept registration change or inspection application in any of the following circumstances:

  1. Vehicle owners who failed to apply for the compulsory automobile insurance prescribed by law
  2. The validity of the insurance is less than 30 days.These rules shall not apply to applications for temporary license plate registration or temporary harbor pass.
When should a mandatory inspection be done?

The date of the next mandatory inspection is shown in the registration. Vehicle owners can get the mandatory inspection up to one month before or after that day. If the last day of eligibility is a holiday, the deadline is extended to the next business day.
