The mandatory technical inspection of vehicles, known as ITV, is a procedure that all drivers must complete in our country. Sometimes, this can be a real headache, especially if the vehicles are old or modified, since passing it can be complicated. Despite this, Many drivers wonder if they could be fined for not having the ITV sticker on their car.

The regular inspection process is carried out at authorized facilities, where the technical condition and safety of the cars is checked. When the vehicle is approved after the inspection, it is given a sticker, which raises doubts in many people about whether they can be fined if they do not have it attached to the car. Likewise, the question arises as to whether all vehicles must undergo the ITV or not. Here, we are going to address this and other concerns. The first question is whether it is possible to receive a fine for not carrying the ITV sticker and the answer is affirmative.

The first ITV must be carried out four years after being registered. and then every two years until it reaches ten years of age. From that moment on, the MOT must be carried out annually to ensure the correct operation and safety of the vehicle.
