Book an appointment for a post-inspection
Vehicle post-inspections can be performed at any inspection station. Make an appointment at the nearest A-Katsastus service point.
A post-inspection must be carried out within one month
In a post-inspection, the parts of the vehicle that were found to have defects or deficiencies during the periodic inspection are checked. The defects must be fixed as soon as possible.
The post-inspection may be carried out at any inspection service point within 1 month of the inspection. If the post-check period has elapsed, the vehicle inspection must be carried out again in its entirety. The post-inspection period (1 month) is determined in accordance with the provisions on deadlines. For example, if a vehicle has been tested on 28 February, the post-inspection period ends on 28 March.
A vehicle that is subject to a driving ban must also be repaired and brought to be inspected within one month for a follow-up inspection. The inspector will lift the driving ban once the vehicle has passed the follow-up inspection. If you take your vehicle to be inspected before the final inspection date specified for the vehicle and your vehicle does not pass the inspection, you can drive the car for 2 months from the date of the inspection before the vehicle is set under a driving ban.
Final date for a post-inspection
The last possible post-inspection date and the possible date for setting the vehicle under a driving ban are indicated on the vehicle inspection certificate. However, these should always be checked with Traficom’s service.Vehicle data and tax payment (Traficom)
