Costa del Sol News: ITV appointments speed up for Malaga drivers

THE granting of appointments to pass the Technical Inspection of Vehicles (ITV) has been accelerated in Malaga thanks to the reinforcement of personnel undertaken by the Junta de Andalucía, but the threat of collapse will return in April, when the eventual contracts that are being formalised expire. Unlike what happened last December, the contracts that are being made by the public company Industrial Verifications of Andalusia (Veiasa) are valid for three months, a measure that satisfies the unions, but only in part because their claim is to enhance the fixed staff of inspectors so that the service is not diminished at any time of the year.

Recent cases show that the situation has gone from not giving an appointment for the review of the car for a month and a half to offering availability in 24 hours, as an immediate reaction to the reinforcements.

Taking into account that the fine for circulating with the expired technical card is €200, the result during the past weeks was the generation of huge queues at dawn to try to get an appointment.
