Technical inspection centers must display the prices of their services for certain categories of light vehicles. An information site on the prices of visits and counter-visits opened on October 8, 2020 so that they are freely accessible to all. This is provided for in a decree published on July 29, 2020 in the Official Journal.

This concerns the centers carrying out periodic technical inspections and second-round inspections of certain categories of light vehicles: passenger cars, 4 × 4, vintage cars, vans, camper vans weighing less than 3.5 tonnes.

The prices are made known to the public on the website of the Directorate-General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Control (DGCCRF) which offers the list of approved centers in your department and allows you to choose the one that offers you the best price (excluding promotional offers) according to the type of your vehicle and its energy. The centers must send their prices to the site without delay, as well as any modification (the price change can be communicated before its effective modification if the date and time at which it will be effective are specified).

Each technical control center is also required to display in a visible and legible manner from outside its establishment, at the main public entrance, the prices of these services, classified by type of energy (petrol, diesel, gas , hybrid, electric).

Note: Any breach noted by the Directorate of Competition, Consumption and Fraud Control (DGCCRF) is punishable by an administrative fine of maximum € 1,500 (€ 3,000 in the event of a repeat offense).
