The TRANSPORT MALTA mandates that the following class of vehicles are required to have their odometer inspected and verified by JEVIC prior to export;
1. N1: Goods conveying vehicles not more than 3.5 tonnes Gross Vehicle Weight(unladen weight plus cargo)
2. M1: Passenger vehicles carrying not more than 8 passengers.
The JEVIC Odometer Inspection involves both physical inspection and documentation checks. Each vehicle that has completed an inspection, and the odometer verified, will be issued with a Certificate of Inspection. This certificate is provided to the client submitting the vehicle for inspection.
Please note that vehicles purchased at auction which are solid stating “? Mileage” i.e a questionable mileage reading, will not pass the JEVIC Odometer Verification.
The JEVIC Odometer Verification is not connected with the Single Vehicle Approval requirements from VCA. Odometer Verification can be completed before, after or concurrently with the VCA inspections.
