Periodical technical inspection for cars and motorcycles
TÜV SÜD conducts periodical technical inspection according to national legislation. At the TÜV SÜD service-center, your car or motorcycle’s brakes, lights and other features are inspected and upon successful passing of the periodical technical inspection, your car or motorcycle is issued a decal (sticker) – your passport to driving on the road.
Used vehicle assessments and valuations
When buying or selling a vehicle, a third party appraisal report is a valuable independent document. Experts from TÜV SÜD inspect the overall condition of the vehicle from a technical, appearance and auxiliary equipment standpoint and identify its market value. The TÜV SÜD Used Car Certificate is a practical, third party document for use in the sale of your vehicle.
Expert reports on vehicle modifications
If you want to have additional parts fitted or modified to your vehicle, many countries require that these are checked against national regulations. TÜV SÜD can support by conducting the necessary checks and issuing the required expert reports and documentation.
Post accident damage assessment
TÜV SÜD provides you with a third party damage assessment report either for your own information or for insurance claim submission to the other party’s insurance company.
The report provides information on the cost of the repair, the depreciation or confirmation that the car is a write-off. In the case of a write-off, the report will indicate replacement and residual values.
In an effort to protect human health, the EU has passed a European Directive which allows municipalities to establish environmental zones in city centres and conurbations. In several German cities, an emission sticker is required to be displayed on certain vehicles operating in specially designated environmental zones. These emission stickers can be obtained through TÜV SÜD.
