Roadworthiness tests

If you buy a new car in Liechtenstein, you must have it checked for roadworthiness 4 years from the date of its initial roadworthiness check and registration.

If you have a used car of 4 years or older in Liechtenstein, you must have it tested for roadworthiness every 2 years after the date of the last roadworthiness check.

A roadworthiness test doesn't have to be conducted each time a vehicle changes owner.

If you register your car as a new resident in Liechtenstein, moving from another EU country, you must take the roadworthiness test.

Contact body for roadworthiness tests: the Motorfahrzeugkontrolle, Gewerbeweg 2, Postfach 684, 9490 Vaduz; Tel. Nr. 00423 236 75 01;
