Many countries insist that motor vehicles comply with national environmental and safety standards. Governments are now becoming more focused on implementing legislation to reduce road accidents and the environmental impact of non-compliant vehicles. It is widely accepted that vehicles should be subject to regular technical inspection at pre-set intervals throughout their life.
