How much does the ITV test cost?
If you are registering your vehicle onto Spanish plates with us, the cost of the ITV is included in the quote.
If you already have a Spanish registered car the cost depends on vehicle type/size, the Veiasa website has a list of all the current charges and is a very useful source of ITV information for Andalucia. Payment is only available by card.
One important point that is very different from the MOT in the UK – if the ITV has expired, it’s illegal to drive the car, even if an appointment is booked, except between home address and your nearest ITV station.
