NTSA inspection charges: NTSA inspection charges have been increased by more than three times to Sh. 3,500.

This increase is contained in a set of proposed regulations that require all cars that are more than four years old undergo mandatory annual inspection.

Private vehicles are also required to be inspected every two years and commercial vehicles annually.

Private car owners will pay between Sh. 2,000 and Sh. 3,500 for the checks depending on the vehicle engine capacity, up from Sh. 1,000.

NTSA inspection charges

“All private vehicles which are more than four-years-old from the recorded date of manufacture shall undergo a motor vehicle inspection test after every two years,” the regulations say.

“All commercial vehicles, public service vehicles and school buses shall undergo a pre-registration inspection and an annual periodic motor vehicle inspection thereafter.”

Cars whose lengths or widths have been modified, those involved in accidents or vehicles salvaged will require fresh inspection.

A schedule of fees in the regulations indicates that private vehicles with an engine capacity of 3,000cc and below will pay Sh. 2,000 while those above will pay Sh. 2,500.

The inspection will also cover motorcycles, three wheelers (tuk-tuks) and trailers. Motorcyclists and three-wheeler operators will part with Sh. 500 while heavy commercial vehicles above five tonnes will pay Sh. 3,500.

Inspection will be outsourced to private centres registered with NTSA which will pay Sh. 500,000 for a three-year licence.

Current charges are as follows:

1 Inspection of motorcycles Sh. 1,300
2 Inspection of three wheelers and vehicles upto 3000cc Sh. 2,600
3 Inspection of vehicles over 3000cc Sh. 3,900
4 Inspection of trailers upto 5 tons Sh. 2,000
5 Inspection of trailers over 5 tons Sh. 4,600
6 Inspection of heavy commercial vehicles over 5 tons Sh. 4,600
​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​

Licenses
1 Inspector licence annually Sh. 3,000
2 Inspection centre licence per three years Sh. 300,000
