New fast-track lanes at SNCT centres

(CS/ta) The “Contrôle Technique” centres in Sandweiler and Esch/Alzette are adding further lanes in a bid to increase capacity and speed up waiting times.

The additional lanes will be reserved for cars, which had previously been refused their vehicle inspection certificate. Following repairs these cars have to either make a new appointment or join the queue again.

Around 15 percent of cars fail their "contrôle technique" the first time around.

However, when a car has failed the inspection, only the part that was found faulty is checked again, making for a much faster turnover.

Therefore, the Sandweiler centre has added a fast-track lane, hoping that this will ease the burden at the other lanes.

The control centre in Esch/Alzette is also set to introduce such a lane.
