From 1st June 2021 there are some small changes to the Spanish ITV test.
Until now if there was a fault with the anti-locking braking system this could have been deemed a minor defect. From now on any defect in the ABS system will be reported as a major fault.
Additionally, if the rear view mirrors are detached then this will also be noted as a major fault.
Faults are categorised as either mild, serious or very serious. Serious faults will mean you have to get the vehicle repaired and re-tested within a certain time frame. Very serious means your vehicle cannot leave the ITV testing station under its own steam and you will have to organise for a tow truck to take it to the garage.

The price of the ITV test in Spain varies depending on your vehicle and also on your location.
