Duplicate Ficha tecnica?

Postby fearless nige » Mon Oct 04, 2010 6:05 pm

A neighbour of mine has a 4x4 that he purchased some 4 years ago. The vehicle has been off road for almost a year now as he cannot find the necessary documents in order to arrange and pass the ITV test. The dealer said that the paperwork was sent to him, but as he lives in the countryside, this never arrived. So the question is, how does he obtain replacement documentation and indeed prove ownership?!! I'm assuming that it is the owner and not the dealer who should do this. Any advice gratefully received!

When I bought a brand new car about ten years ago the distributor's gestor lost the documentation (well, they said DGT had lost it). In any case the car had to back to the testing centre and undergo another 'type approval' type ITV in order to secure a duplicate.

I had to take the car back to the distributor and they gave me a courtesy car until it was sorted out. Given the computerisation of documentation over the past few years it may be possible to obtain duplicates by applying to DGT. Unless anyone has more recent experience I would suggest your neighbour goes to DGT and asks.

Go and see the gestor Martin who specialises on all things to do with car paperwork.
I find her charges very reasonable and she will tell you how much it costs before she does the work.
She is on the main road in Caleta de Velez, opposite the Saturday street market.

Hi

I had a similar occurrence about two years ago - not a problem for the ITV centre who said they could issue a duplicate. However the owners wanted the duplicate to sell the car so they simply bought a new one from the dealer who sold them the old one (his problem therefore)
