When you are planning on buying a second-hand car and want to know the technical condition of the car, whether the car has had damage in the past and whether it requires any repairs, you can instruct DEKRA to conduct a used vehicle inspection.

All our car inspections are set out and defined in inspection protocols, ensuring all inspections are tailored to the specific case. Our inspectors examine the operational ability of the vehicle using various technical tools. Afterwards, they consults our databases to gain clarity regarding the mileage and any past damage to the vehicle. Upon completion of the inspection, our inspectors will document all their findings in a clear report which will be sent to you.

If the vehicle needs to be checked on site, it is important that it can be driven on a 4 post (vehicle) lift. More information about inspections performed on camper vehicles can be found here.

If you wish to have your vehicle inspected again after it has been repaired, you can instruct us to perform a re-inspection.

The following brands are not eligible for our inspection:

Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maserati, Maybach, Morgan, Rolls-Royce, Tesla and TVR.

We have prepared an overview of our fees and terms and conditions for used vehicle inspection. If you would like DEKRA to perform a used vehicle inspection, please click here to apply. You can pay immediately via Ideal or with your credit card. If it concerns a vehicle that is older than 25 years, please, contact us first by phone prior to your application.
