What is the General Periodic (APK) Inspection?
The General Periodic Inspection, also known as mot or in Dutch APK. This is an statutory inspection in Europe to promote road safety and protect the environment. The MOT/APK is a snapshot and does not guarantee that your vehicle will remain safe for the rest of the year. This inspection ensures that the vast majority of the Dutch fleet is safely on the road. For example, the MOT/APK looks at tires, brakes and chassis and other things to ensure road safety. Through the APK/MOT a large of the Dutch fleet is rejected annually and is no longer legally allowed on public roads.
