Since the 1er January 1992, the technical control of all motorized vehicles was regulated. From May 2018, changes have taken place and new checkpoints have been put in place. And even the two wheels are in their sights. Even if this verification is a legal obligation, it is by no means the only reason to go through these verifications. There are others that need to be made known to you. Today we list 10 reasons to take your diesel to technical control.
Impossible to bypass the 130 or so checkpoints
In order to avoid possible road accidents, the State has set up more than 130 checkpoints divided into ten categories. Including steering, braking, mechanical components, visibility, etc. No matter where you are, it is almost impossible to bypass these checkpoints. The solution is then to carry out all the necessary checks to drive with complete peace of mind.

Going through a technical control also allows you to know everything about the vehicle. In particular the identity of the owner, the mileage of the vehicle, its date of last check as well as its defects. Without forgetting the deadline for its validation.

To respect the law
Since the technical control is regulated by articles R. 323-1 to R. 323-26 of the Highway Code, going through this check gives you a positive point. Especially in the eyes of the law, because it allows you to stay within the law.
To avoid all kinds of fines
Failure to comply with the Highway Code entails payment of a fine ranging from 135 to 750 €. This varies depending on the type of ticket: fixed fine or immobilization of the vehicle.

Insurance contracts make it possible to reimburse a person subscribed, for example, to civil liability. However, the insurer has the right to terminate this contract if it finds that the anomaly has been noted at the technical inspection and has not been resolved.
For the sale of a car
