Main inspection

Cars in Germany are required to undergo their first main inspection after three years, and every two years after that. 

Here you can find out what goes on during the main inspection, what you need to bring with you, and where you can have your car inspected near you. 

Tuning, type approvals and registering modifications

You can tune your car however you wish, provided it complies with the German Road Traffic Approval Order (StVZO). Do not take any chances – check with our experts whether your attachments or modifications are legally compliant.

Value & damage assessments

Have you had an accident and need to know the cost of the damage? Do you want to know how much your vehicle is worth and whether it meets the criteria to be classified as a classic car? Our independent assessments can give you legal certainty and a neutral basis for negotiation.
