The Ministry of Transport has issued a white note in which it gives some details concerning the future implementation of the technical control of two wheels.
The government seems to be moving forward with the establishment of a technical control for motorized two-wheelers. In effect, first tracks have been put forward by the executive. The Ministry of Transport has thus opened a phase of consultation with the actors of the file.
The latter should lead to the establishment of a pure and hard technical control. The first tracks of which are distilled today by The Parisian. The media has indeed provided a white note (note without header). The latter is intended for the Regional Directorates for the Environment, Planning and Housing (Dreal). The ministry details its plan for the CT of two wheels:
We are “moving towards the implementation of the technical control (…) the least penalizing possible”. This “by June 2023”. The ministry evokes “a simplified technical control with a significant reduction in control points, compared to the number of control points applied to light vehicles and a progressive implementation in two stages. »
In detail, this will give “a visual check at the start, then a more detailed check involving the taking of a few measurements using dedicated equipment (emissions of pollutants for example). »
A price lower than 50 euros
The ministry also gives leads on the future price of this operation. The price should be less than 50 euros : « [Il faudra que] the price of the technical control stay as low as possible”, say the authorities. Still, the centers will be free to set their prices.
For reasons of competition as well as for reasons related to distances, the government therefore wishes that a maximum of centers can control the motorcycles. It is thus necessary that “users do not have to travel too far to find a centre”we read in this note.
According to Roland Thévenoux, president of the SNCTA (national union of automobile technical inspection), it should “3,000 checks” on the territory. This will involve training a number of controllers dedicated to this task. A 35 hour accreditation will be necessary, in addition to technical investments to be made.
Reasons why the date of next June for the implementation of this measure is advanced. If the application texts are available at the beginning of the year and that the control is not too cumbersome, initially. However, the ministry points out that the consultation phase is not over and that “nothing is stabilized at this stage”.
