Periodic Technical Inspection (PTI)

Regular checking of vehicle safety is a must

People in Germany say: "My car is due for its TÜV inspection". The law demands: "All registered vehicles must be periodically tested for safety on the road and adherence to traffic safety regulations." And common sense tells us: "I can only take the wheel with confidence if I know that my car is safe." But they are all talking about the same thing: mandatory periodic technical inspection.
