Drivers now have even more choice when looking for an appointment to get their statutory vehicle inspections.
The Luerenzweiler Kontrollstatioun is the third company to offer a vehicle roadworthiness testing service.
Founded by former director of the SNCT Armand Biberich and automotive expert Allain Dasthy, Luerenzweiler Kontrollstatioun (branded as “LU KS”) is hoping to capture around 10% of the current market for statutory vehicle inspections.
Biberich told 100,7 radio on Tuesday that some 450,000 vehicles are inspected annually by the existing sites managed by the Société nationale de contrôle technique (SNCT) and Dekra. The new site has capacity to check 60,000 vehicles per year, and Biberich says the company’s initial target is to undertake around 40,000 vehicles.
The new contrôle technique site in Lorentzweiler is located just off the A7 motorway and has started taking reservations for both private and commercial vehicles.
