Around 450,000 vehicle checks are carried out each year in Luxembourg
Car owners could soon have more choice on where to take their vehicle for its annual technical checks after reports that two new centres could be constructed in Junglinster and Fridhaff.
RTL reported on Thursday that nothing had yet been decided but since the national society for technical controls, SNCT, had lost its monopoly over carrying out the compulsory reviews, the government was in talks with the two communes.
Around 450,000 vehicle checks are carried out each year in Luxembourg with high demand meaning appointments must be booked months in advance for some locations.
Currently cars can be checked at Sandweiler, Bissen, Esch-sur-Alzette and Wilwerwitz. In 2016, Luxembourg reformed the law on car checks, ending SNCT’s monopoly. Germany technical inspection organisation Dekre opened the first non-SNCT centre on 1 February 2018 at Autocenter Goedert, in the Bourmicht business park in Bertrange.
