The “Yellow vests” really did not need that. On may 20, 2018, when the technical control has become a more selective number of motorists have found that its price had increased significantly. The number of control points is then increased from 123 to 131, and that of failures pointed from 453 to 696. The tides yellow that enliven the Saturdays parisians then obliged the government to postpone the 1st July the new curing, to be initially applied on the 1st of January to the technical control.

A short respite, since this fateful date is approaching. If our leaders do not change their roadmap, the smoke opacity will be controlled in less than two months. A measure that would blow up the rate of cross-visits of diesel vehicles, only concerned. In particular those which operate in urban areas, which are subject to clogging of their particulate filters and EGR valve. But another surprise awaits in three years, motorists: the measurement very accurate tell of the “five gas” released by the exhaust of our cars: the carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), unburnt hydrocarbons (HC), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and oxygen (O2). Originally planned for 2019, this new device has been postponed to 2022, because the technical inspection centres say they struggle to acquire the expensive and indispensable measuring devices.

The drivers of “green” vehicles not rewarded

According to a study of the comparator the average price of the review would be passed to 69,08 € before the reform of 2018 at 77,60 euros. That is, an increase of 12.3 %, a figure that would be historic for the technical control. According to this same survey, at the national level, there is a strong disparity of prices ranging from 45 euros to 110 euros. According to the weekly Self , the drivers who have adopted a frame, “ecological” will not be rewarded: with the average price of the control technique would be to 84,76 € for a hybrid model, 85,21 € for an electric car, and 94 euros for a vehicle running on LPG! The cause would be a battery of additional tests required for these energies.

according To the results published by the UTAC-OTC, the explosion of cross-visits would not, however, taken place (18,56 % in 2017, the 18.99% is in 2018 and 19,74 % from 20 may). But according to the National Federation of the Automobile, these figures are to be regarded with caution. First of all, as it is a new regulation, adjustments would be expected. Controllers should take ownership of these new rules, and to refine their judgment following the mandatory training on an annual basis. Second point, the first six months of implementation of the reform have especially seen cars recent enough to pass the technical scrutineering. This would be due to the anticipation generated by the fear of the owners of old vehicles, which has resulted in an increase of the controls before the reform, and a decline thereafter. Finally, it is difficult to assess the number of motorists who are in default of technical control, for fear of failure.
