News on ITV Tests

estacion-itvThe following was published yesterday in the Boletín Oficial del Estado (Official State Gazette) concerning ITV inspections,  with immediate effect.

The Ministry of Transport previously placed a 30 day extension commencing from the end of the State of Alarm for those vehicle owners whose ITV expired during the Lock Down.

Owing to the huge back log that would have occurred when those 30 days expired, they have now introduced an extension to the 30 days, in 15 day stages, so that everybody doesn’t turn up at once.

It works like this:

If your ITV expired between the 14th and 20th of March, you have those 30 days from the lifting of the State of Alarm, plus another 15 days to get your ITV done.

If your ITV expired between the 21st and 27th of March, you have those 30 days plus another two 15-day extensions; i.e., 30 + 30 from when the State of Alarm is lifted.

If your ITV expired between the 28th and 3rd of April, you have those 30 days plus another three 15-day extensions to get your ITV done; i.e., 30 + 45.

The bad news? There’s always bad news! Your new ITV certificate is only valid from when you eventually get it done up to the period it would have originally ran out next year; meaning that it might only be valid six months or so.

    Sandra: If it automatically comes out of your bank account, it will eventually be charged to it without further action on your part. If it is not a standing order, then you will receive notification – I received notification a couple of days ago via whatsapp.
