Periodic Motor Vehicle Inspection

§ 57a para. 10 of the Motor Vehicles Act (KFG) – results 2012

2.94 million motor vehicles inspected, 7% failed

93% of the motor vehicles inspected and reported to Statistics Austria in 2012 passed the test and received a label. The outcome of the inspection was either "without defects" (21.3%) or "slight defects" (72.0%).

On the other hand 6.6% of the motor vehicles failed the test. In these cases the vehicle examiners detected "serious defects" (6.2%) or even "danger in delay" (0.4%). These defects have not been repaired, therefore the issue of the label has been denied.

The percentage of motor vehicles failing the test remained almost constant in comparison to 2011 (-0.3% percentage points).

In 2013 this statistics was closed down.
