Murcia ITV Centres to Slash Test Prices


The cost of having your car go through an ITV test in the Murcia region is set to be slashed by 37 percent, with a 43 percent diesel vehicle reduction, under regional government plans to advertise a new 15-year contract for ITV centres. The administration claims that it will make the test rates some of the lowest in Spain.

Part of the tender package also includes the creation of 11 new ITV centres with an extra centre proposed for the Cartagena area as well as one for Santomera, close to the border with Alicante Province. Current ITV rates in Murcia are still substantially cheaper than for the neighbouring Valencia region, with a fair amount of “border-hopping” taking place to centres like San Pedro del Pinatar (pictured).
