All vehicles that are expected to renew their Istimara (registration) are exempted from reporting to a Fahes centre for technical inspection, said an official at the General Directorate of Traffic.

Speaking to Al Rayan TV Channel yesterday, Lieutenant Abdul Mohsen Al Ruwaili, officer at the Awareness Department said that all vehicles will be exempted from technical inspection as of March 22 (next Sunday) in order to benefit from online services.

He also said that this came in collaboration with Fahes centres and for motorists to get the approval online, they will have to download the Woqod app, navigate to the Fahes section, request for a “new check”, fill in the data and complete the inspection process.

Lieutenant Abdul Mohsen Al Ruwaili added that there is no need for motorists to bring their vehicles to Fahes for inspection.
