Vehicle Testing

Postby Kilkis » Wed Sep 26, 2018 9:45 am

Is your vehicle inspection, KTEO, up-to-date? If not, now might be the time to get it done. Additional fines of €150 begin on 1 October. This is in addition to the existing fines. Also they will be applied automatically through the Taxisnet system.

Do motorbikes now need an MOT?

Yes. That came into force in November 2013 I think. I certainly had mine tested in November 2013, 2015 and 2017. Motorbikes don't need the intermediate emission test like cars.

Is there an equivalent of a UK SORN? other than handing in the plates?

I'm currently stuck in the UK due to a medical condition and cannot get to Crete to either MOT my vehicle or hand in the plates.
There's no such thing as a bad taste joke

Weather Underground is predicting 10.75 mm for Chania with the highest probability between 3 am and 3 pm. Similar for Friday and Saturday with Friday the lowest probability and Saturday the highest.

I don't think Greece has an equivalent of SORN other than handing in the plates. Could somebody get it tested for you, John?

Thanks for this information Warwick, checked KTEO on my car and discovered it was out of date, on previous visits to KTEO Rethymno mine has been the only vehicle in the system, on Friday there was a 5-hour wait - others obviously seeking to avoid the hefty new fine.

I guessed it would be busy. Greeks always plan Christmas on Boxing Day.

It surprises me that motorbikes don't need the intermediate emissions test, as some of them are the worst offenders, judging by the plumes of blue smoke trailing along behind them -- although I'm sure you are not one of them Warwick :wink:

You mostly get the blue smoke from two strokes as they are burning the oil mixed with the petrol. That cannot be avoided. You shouldn't get blue smoke from a four stroke unless the engine is badly worn, e.g. worn piston or valve stem seals.
