How much will it cost to pass the ITV in Spain in 2023?
It is possible that you have spent days trying to find a space in your busy schedule to go to the ITV, but you do not feel like it and also, any other task is ahead on your list of priorities. It's normal, this happens to most drivers. The process of passing the ITV is very ungrateful, it not only takes time but also involves an economic outlay.
If you want to know what you can do to comply with this procedure without worries, comfortably, and without wasting time, we invite you to continue reading this article in which we inform you about the prices of the ITV in 2023 and how we can help you in the process of the inspection of your car.
How is the ITV price set?
ITV prices may vary between autonomous communities and even from one center to another within the same community. It is the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism that is in charge of updating the prices, establishing a base that each autonomous community is subsequently in charge of adjusting based on factors such as, for example, the per capita income of the community.
In addition, another factor that affects the final price of the ITV is the type of vehicle and the propulsion system it uses, that is, if it is a diesel or gasoline car.
It is important to take all these variables into account when choosing where to carry out the ITV of your car.
What is checked on ITV?
When passing the ITV, a series of evaluations contained in the ITV Station Inspection Procedure Manual must be carried out. Regardless of whether the cost is more expensive or cheaper, in all ITV, you must:
- Check the exterior and interior conditioning of the vehicle.
- Check signage and lighting.
- Ensure that the vehicle does not produce polluting emissions.
- Check the braking system, steering, wheels, suspension, and axles.
- Check engine and transmission.
All these evaluations are mandatory and best of all, we can do them for you. By reserving your car park with Aparca&go you can also contact our ITV service, leave your car in our hands and we will take care of passing the inspection.
Passing the ITV is an unpleasant procedure for drivers, especially due to the long waits, the loss of time, and the economic cost involved.
However, it is an official and mandatory procedure for all motorized vehicles that are more than four years old, and it is of vital importance to always have the car in its optimal state of circulation.
Driving illegally, with the inspection of the ITV without being approved or expired, means committing a serious infraction that will be punished with up to 200 euros, and can even reach a 500-euro fine if the traffic agent considers that the vehicle can cause road safety problems.
Regardless of the economic cost of not passing the ITV or driving with it expired, the biggest problem is endangering the safety of all people who travel on public roads. Therefore, everyone must keep the vehicles in proper condition and check them when appropriate.
