Mot Law Spain-ITV

A Spanish ITV has no meaning on a British registered car, zero. Spanish police are impounding ex pat vehicles daily.

Times have changed, an ITV was unofficially accepted until 2012, as long as you had insurance

If you get the grua / impounded we can easily rescue your car from every secenario except no Mot. Although a minor offence, i.e no MoT , for vehicle release it is the most challanging.

How is this service so cheap

We use down time space on our LOHRs 10 car transporters to enable this fantastically low price, your car may be away for two weeks. We do an express 8 day guaranteed service for £1000

For obvious reasons no £640 Mot runs in high season ie July to mid September, as we are full of premium loads.

What if my car fails the MoT

Car repairs are cheaper in spain, we have trusted garage facillities in Spain that will do a pre pre-mot check for just 30 euros, there is no obligation to undertake this. This way we achieve a very high pass rate. The only fails should then be brake in-balance which only a rolling road will detect.

The UK garage is very fair when pricing adjustments and rectifications. We are a valued client, and get treated as such.
