I.T.V. Test

All vehicles in Spain must periodically undergo a technical inspection. There are 50 odd inspection points in Andalucia, with service more readily available in heavily populated areas. The schedule your vehicle is required to follow will depend on the date it was first licensed.

 

 

Following are the ITV inspection schedules for different types of vehicles which was revised in 2017. See REAL DECRETO 920/2017, de 23 de octubre (Boletín Oficial del Estado nº 271, de 8 de noviembre de 2017):

Mopeds / Cyclomotores
Up to three years old - exempt
Over three years - every two years

Motorcycles
Up to four years old - exempt
Over four years - every two years

Private Vehicles
Up to four years old - exempt
Four to ten years - every two years
Over ten years - every year

Caravans
Up to six years - exempt
Over six years - every two years

If you are caught without a current ITV sticker (issued when the test is passed), you are liable for a fine of 90 to 150 euros (minimum). Your license could also be confiscated until you produce proof of passing the ITV (within 10 days of confiscation).

In Andalucia all the ITV stations are managed by VIESA which is a public company wholly owned by the Consejería de Economía, Innovación, Ciencia y Empleo of the Junta de Andalucía.
