Exhaust Emissions Test Card (Κ.Ε.Κ card)

The supply for emission cards (K.E.K) concerning motorcycles is not yet foreseen by Legislation as stated in the following government document 69278/6331 issued 03.12.2014

Voluntary inspection

Voluntary inspection is usually carried out in order to evaluate the condition of a two-wheel vehicle, before buying a second-hand motorcycle or after having it repaired at a garage. Voluntary inspection is independent of and does not substitute the roadworthiness test (KTEO) provided for by the legislation in force. According to the law, voluntary inspection may be carried out only on two-wheel vehicles for which a valid roadworthiness certificate was issued (if 4 years have passed from the date of purchase as new vehicles). If such a certificate is not issued then a roadworthiness test must be carried out and the relevant roadworthiness certificate must be issued. Obviously, two-wheel vehicles with foreign registration plates or two-wheel vehicles for which no roadworthiness test is required (for example motorcycles that are less than 4 years old), may undergo voluntary inspection.

Documents required for voluntary inspection:

 – Vehicles with Greek registration plates

  • Registration certificate
  • Identity card or passport or driving license of the person who brings the vehicle for testing
  • Valid roadworthiness certificate (if the vehicle is required to be inspected)

 – Vehicles with foreign registration plates

  • Registration certificate
  • Identity card or passport or driving license of the person who brings the vehicle for testing

** It has to be noted that no special sticker is attached to the vehicle registration plate.
