To control (and, ideally, reduce) the levels of contamination in the air, the vehicle verification program was created, which is operated by the Ministry of the Environment. This initiative is mandatory in several states of the Republic, in which it is necessary that the cars pass the tests to be able to circulate.
It does not matter if you are a new driver or you already have years of experience, the subject of vehicular verification is usually a bit stressful. That is why at Guros we have created a checklist so that you can make sure you have everything ready for your visit to the verification center.
FIRST THING’S FIRST
Before going to the list, it is important to remind you that it is necessary to make your appointment at the verification center where you are going to go and show up a few minutes in advance. It is an extra step, but it has helped a lot to speed up vehicle verification and the verification centers are not as full as before.
To schedule your appointments, all you have to do is go to your state’s site, select the verification center, the day, the time, and enter your card data. We share the leagues to make your appointment for Rebuilt vehicle verification.
Although it does not require as many documents and steps as other procedures, we assure you that having this list to check that you have everything in order for your vehicle verification will make you feel much calmer.
[Ideally, this list will go with layout and not just bullet points ]
Checklist for your vehicle verification
Make sure you take them with you and have them on hand in a folder so you can deliver them all together and speed up the process.
- Valid circulation card
- Proof of verification of the previous period
- Appointment printed at the checkpoint
- Not have debts from fines or possession (You do not require a document to prove this, but we still recommend you check before showing up for your appointment)
It is always a good idea to take your car to the workshop a couple of days before your verification to make sure that everything is in order and thus avoid falling into a trap or abuse.
- Oil change (it is recommended to do it every 5 thousand – 10 thousand km, depending on the car model and frequency of use)
- Review of tires (it is recommended to do it, at least, once a year)
- Alignment and balancing (try to do it every 10 thousand km)
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOT PASS THE VEHICLE VERIFICATION?
Obviously, this is not the ideal scenario. However, there is always the possibility (especially if you do not take your car to the workshop before your appointment). If this is the case, you have 30 calendar days to try again at no cost at the same verification center where your car failed.
