Societe Nationale de Controle Technique (SNCT)
With the legal introduction of the technical control of road vehicles in 1955, the SNCT mainly defends three fundamental causes:
The SNCT carries out about 450,000 technical inspections each year and thanks to these controls, the SNCT detects more than 67,000 vehicles constituting a danger on public roads. The largest number is rejected because of problems of brakes, tires, suspensions etc. therefore, the elements in direct contact with the road. It is in the interest of everyone that his car and that of other motorists are in good standing.
It is strongly recommended to the purchaser of a second-hand vehicle, to make a technical control before the definitive purchase. The technical control is your guarantee that the vehicle complies with the Highway Code in force.
The periodic technical inspection includes important points contributing to the protection of the environment such as gaseous emissions, acoustic nuisances and without forgetting liquid leaks (oils, etc.).See more
