These inspections are similar to the obligatory periodic inspection, with the differences being that the price is 60% lower and that they have no legal standing. Simply, they entail an inspection that offers assurance – before, perhaps, a given journey or before purchase of a second-hand vehicle – of roadworthiness.
Safety inspections These are inspections and cover the same areas as a periodic inspection, though they do not specify an expiry date (except in pre-registration processes). They are performed when modifications are registered.
Inspections of accident-damaged vehicles These are performed in the case of a highways agency requiring a report regarding significant damage resulting from a traffic accident before returning the vehicle to the road.
