The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has provisionally approved eight motor vehicle companies as Authorised Motor Vehicle Inspection Agencies (AMVIAs) to carry out vehicle inspections for private and commercial vehicles.

LTA chief executive officer Carmine Piantedosi said: “We are gradually opening up this service to other companies, so that people do not always need to come to LTA for vehicle inspections.

“This will boost the Land Transport Authorities vehicle inspection service delivery.”

Car owners will be able to get their vehicles inspected for their annual warrant of fitness or registration at a licensed agency.

Once the vehicle has passed all the tests, the owner can take the completed documentation to LTA and receive the new registration sticker.

“It is encouraging to see these vehicle agencies stepping up and willing to make the necessary investments in specialised equipment necessary to help them service their customers better,” Mr Piantedosi said.

The eight companies are: Carpenters Motors, Asco Motors, Wheels Pacific, Kia Motors, Eskay Motors, Millennium Motors, Dee Ace and Motor Management Services Ltd. They are awaiting final approval subject to meeting the required compliance levels.

Asco Motors, Carpenters Motors, Millennium Motors, Dee Ace and Motor Management are already carrying out inspections for their own customers in accordance with LTA’s vehicle inspection checklist.

This includes lighting and braking systems, fuel supply connections, doors, mirrors and glasses check, body condition, steering and suspension systems, engine, wheels, seats, dash and seat belts, transmission and drive lines.

“At the end of the day the customer gets the same standard of service regardless of which Authorised Motor Vehicle Inspection Agency they go to,” Mr Piantedosi said.
