The motor vehicle inspection checks the import car for its roadworthiness before registration. It does not matter whether it is a new or used car. Even if a TÜV appointment has only just been made abroad, it must be repeated to MFK. However, a test date can only be agreed after the auto import. Depending on the canton, it takes between 4 and 6 weeks for private individuals to pass the MFK examination.

To save you the long wait, the Import-Butler offers a 5-day express service for motor vehicle inspection. This way your car will be registered faster in Switzerland and at the same time you do not need to spend a day on holiday for the test date.
