Default Yes or No ?

If your car fails the I.T.V. and they give you 60 days to retest, can you drive your car within the 60 days ?

It depends upon the severity of the fault. It's explained at the bottom of the failure form - sorry I haven't got one to hand - my current car passed it's first and only ITV. From memory there are three categories. Something like:

1. Don't drive
2. Drive it only to the nearest garage and get it fixed
3. OK to drive, get it fixed and re-tested.

Sorry I can't be more precise, I'm sure Fred will be along shortly - I'm sure he must have a few ITV failure forms lying around (well he was rude about my car once)

My friend continued to drive to and fro work whilst dealing with the problems that failed her car. She had to replace her tyres (they were not dangerous but would not last more than a few months) and a few other minor things so the 60 days was a time lapse in order to put things right. Guess it really depends on why it failed, for example if it is the brakes I would say no way it should be used.

Sorry cannot give you a definitive yes or no. Surprised that the garage did not give you that information.

I would imagine you'll be alright as it's not a safety issue.

What car is it? If it is a diesel your garage will probably give you a fuel additive and tell you to drive to the ITV station in third gear (not much fun).

When doing the emission test advance the accelerator slowly to maximum rather than stabbing at it.

Almost right and no I haven't got any failed forms! In fact last time I had my 11 year old car tested they gave me two years before the next test!

There are four possible outcomes to an ITV test.

INSPECCIÓN FAVORABLE

You've passed.

INSPECCIÓN FAVORABLE CON DEFECTOS LEVES

You have passed but with minor problems that need to be fixed. You can drive normally but if the Guardia stop you and find out that you haven't fixed them it could be a problem so don't ignore them. No further test required.

INSPECCIÓN DESFAVORABLE

You have failed. Drive immediately to a garage and get it fixed and then have it retested. You cannot drive the car apart from directly to a garage.

INSPECCIÓN NEGATIVA

The car cannot be driven at all. Call the Grua and get it taken to the garage then have it retested.

Look on your Ficha Tecnica - it will give the exact date that it runs out.
