Peace of Mind Vehicle Inspection

Peace of Mind Vehicle Inspection

The DEKRA Automotive peace-of-mind vehicle inspection is designed for people who are thinking of buying or have recently purchased a second hand vehicle and are happy with the cosmetics of the vehicle such as the interior and paintwork, but need assurance that the mechanics of the vehicle are in good order.

This vehicle inspection provides peace of mind on mechanical, vehicle operations and previous accident damage checks. The vehicle inspection engineer provides both a verbal and multi-page written report.

Please note that the peace of mind vehicle inspection is not available on 4x4, sports/high performance cars, any vehicle on a Total Loss register, or a vehicle that is over ten years old.

The peace of mind vehicle inspection includes:

  • A thorough vehicle inspection, checking up to 155 items on the vehicle
  • Road Test
  • Car Data Check (pre-purchase inspections only)

Road Test

A road test of up to five miles is undertaken by the engineer performing the peace of mind vehicle inspection. This test is carried out to confirm that all of the electrical instruments are functioning (if applicable), and that the vehicle operates appropriately both during and after the road test.

Cancellation Policy: If a pre-arranged vehicle inspection is cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the appointment, then a cancellation fee of £78 is incurred by the client. Any cancellation before this time is charged at £35 to the client.
