Need for the Document[edit]

This is a document certifying that a vehicle is road-worthy and can be driven on the Egypt roads for a stated period of time.

This document is mandatory for all commercial vehicles and its validity is for a period of 6 months. For private vehicles, however, that are older than 5 years,, the road-worthiness certificate is to be obtained once a year.

You must have your motor vehicle tested for road worthiness before you register it in your name. If your motor vehicle is used for public transport or is a heavy-load vehicle (excluding buses), you must take it to be tested for road worthiness every year before you renew the motor vehicle license. A bus must be tested for road worthiness every six months.

It is your responsibility as the owner of a vehicle to have your vehicle tested. You can take it to a private or public vehicle testing station.

A Certificate of Road worthiness is required when a vehicle is sold, if a used vehicle is to be re-registered or, in some cases to clear a Vehicle Defect Notice.

A vehicle may be exempt from road worthiness requirements if it is not designed for carrying passengers or goods on the highway or is a specially constructed vehicle.

At the end of the roadworthy test, if passed, a notice is issued.
