EC launches a web tool for vehicle registration & roadworthiness documentsDaniele D'Onofrio
The European Commission, with the cooperation of the Member States, has created a web tool to display the different models of vehicle registration and roadworthiness documents, similar to its successful tool for driving licences.
With the help of this tool, citizens and authorities will be able to see if the document in front of them corresponds to the model used by the Member State concerned. This can for example help citizens when they are buying a second-hand car from abroad, and help authorities when they are asked to re-register an imported car.
The tool also provides general information on periodic roadworthiness testing and vehicle registration in the Member States, and links to the website of the national authorities for more details.
The relevant EU legislations are Directive 2014/45/EU concerning roadworthiness certificate and the proof of test, and Council Directive 1999/37/EU regarding vehicle registration certificate.
