by Joy Ekeke
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Vehicle Inspection Office (VIO) is to commence computerised vehicle inspection from 1 September 2014.
This information was contained in a flyer made available to NAN by the directorate. The flyer said that the exercise was in line with the procedure for ascertaining road worthiness of vehicles in the country.
It advised all corporate organisations, associations, unions and individual vehicle owners whose vehicle documents would expire by the end of August to take such vehicles for the physical computerised inspection.
“Private vehicles are to be inspected once a year and commercial vehicles twice a year. This procedure is carried out at the point of vehicle registration or vehicle documentation renewal,” it said.
It listed road worthiness safety items for the inspection as braking system, steering, chassis and chassis attachments, emission testing, lighting system, headlights, visibility, alignment and axis wheels.
Others are tryes, suspensions and supplementary test for vehicles carrying passengers.
