TÜV NORD inspectors are trained to evaluate the condition of vehicles at the time the inspection takes place. Their subsequent inspection report is based on what they see and hear during the inspection. To ensure the most accurate inspection, the vehicle's exterior and interior must be clean and the vehicle must be in a well lit area. If a vehicle is outdoors, weather may also affect the accuracy of the inspection report. TÜV NORD inspectors do not disassemble any vehicle components as part of its vehicle inspection procedure. TÜV NORD inspectors conduct an extensive inspection that allows their trained eyes and ears to evaluate a vehicle's overall condition. The inspection is similar to one you yourself might conduct except TÜV inspectors have the experience you don't to spot things like unusual wear and tear, and evidence of previous repair and/or body work. Ultimately, the inspector comes to conclusions that are, by necessity, subjective, but based on their extensive experience of inspecting hundreds of vehicles each year.
Our Vehicle Inspection Report is not a certificate of roadworthiness nor does it replace the requirement of a Roadworthy Inspection to be carried out on the vehicle.
