  • Layout of negligence charge

The notification of the charge of failure is sent to the owner or the vehicle operator.

If you visit the vehicle within one month of loading, you will be given a 50 % discount.

  • If the vehicle is de-registered for processing/disposal within two months of loading, the charge will automatically be dropped. It is possible to use the number plate without returning the number plate.

  • No half-discount is granted for payment only, a vehicle must be entered for inspection or registered from circulation within one month of loading to receive the discount.

If the fee has not been paid at the inspection post in the two months following the request of an online bank, the fee will be increased by 100 % for all vehicles.

Variable vehicle

If a vehicle is defective and cannot be inspected, the vehicle must be registered by the owner in order to prevent the failure of the duty. It must be done before the vehicle is to be inspected. This includes campers and such equipment that are in the winter storage room.

Wrong viewpoint

The mistake of sticking the wrong vehicle inspection sticker to the checkpoint is the vehicle record that controls the vehicle but not the sticker on the vehicle. In these cases the fee is cancelled due to the error of the inspection post. The district attorney notes that confirmation must be received from the district attorney's office.

  • The county may request financial training from the owner/instrument, and finally the forced sale of the vehicle for non-payment of the negligence charges.
