Ensuring your Safety and Saving you Money

Keeping your vehicle in peak operating condition is the best way to ensure your safety on the road as well as reducing your overall motoring costs. Regular inspections can help you identify potential hazards and save you money by preventing additional damage before it happens. It is for these reasons that the AA has partnered with DEKRA, a globally recognised German vehicle-monitoring organisation to make South African roads safer.

DEKRA is a world leader in the supply of vehicle roadworthy inspections. DEKRA has taken over the ownership and management of the formerly branded AA Test and Drive Centres and have now branded the centres "DEKRA in association with the AA". The collaboration between the AA and DEKRA will ensure that the standards of vehicle safety in South Africa are world class.

The DEKRA in association with the AA centres offer a range of professional vehicle examinations designed to help you identify vehicle flaws, and make an informed decision when purchasing a new or used car.

AA Members qualify for a 15% discount on Roadworthy Tests and Technical Inspections if they visit a DEKRA Centre and produce their AA Membership card.

Vehicle Tests

Roadworthy Testing

A Roadworthy Test must be conducted every time a vehicle changes ownership. The test, which is a legal requirement, takes 30 minutes and ensures that vehicles meet the safety standards defined by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS).

Multi-point Check

A Multi-Point Check establishes the overall condition of a vehicle. It is limited to a visual inspection which includes additional items and a Roadworthy Test.

Technical Examination

A Technical Examination is a detailed bumper to bumper inspection of all visible and observable components of the vehicle. The process takes about 2 to 3 hours.

Safety Check

How safe is your vehicle really? 85.48% of road accidents are caused by defective or unroadworthy vehicles. A Safety Check is a quick and cost effective inspection before you travel. If safety really matters to you, a DEKRA Safety Check is the answer.
