What is Inspection Data?

Car inspection is the process of inspecting and examining the car, its parts and their condition, both externally and internally. To ensure that it aligns with the provided legal or other safety regulations and is safe to drive. 

Usually, it is made legally necessary and compulsory by governments to inspect vehicles before and during use. In some cases, proof of inspection is needed before a vehicle is legally approved for use on the road, or for registering for a road license and number plate.

A car that has been inspected may have a record attached to its licence plate as proof. This is helpful for traffic police and law enforcement agencies who can access records using a central database.

Use Cases

Inspection of a car is certainly necessary to maintain the safety and handling of the car, as well as for the car to be operating efficiently.

Parts that should be covered generally in an inspection include:

·   Engine

·   Brakes

·   Transmission

·   Suspension

·   Steering System

·   Interior Features

·   AC/Heater

·   Electronics

·   Exterior

·   Lights

·   Battery

·   Body

Ensuring that all these parts are intact and well-maintained is necessary for many reasons. It not only ensures the safety of the driver but of the car itself. It also results in a well-maintained car that will have a better market value if needs to be sold.

Inspection can save fleet management organisations from many problems. A car that is not checked properly may break down which causes major business operation issues. A vehicle may not be controllable on the road and result in an accident. This could cost fleet management organisations loss both financially and in legal cases. It is necessary to get your car inspected, as it both maintains the health of the car and the driver’s safety.
