Motorfahrzeugkontrolle intro

The MOTORFAHRZEUGKONTROLLE examines the IMPORT-AUTO for its roadworthiness before registration. It does not matter whether it is a NEW or a USE CAR. Even if a TÜV appointment abroad has only just been carried out, it has to go to the MFK again. However, an inspection date can only be agreed after the import of the car. 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-WORKING DAY EXPRESS SERVICE for motor vehicle inspection. This means that your car will be registered in Switzerland more quickly and at the same time you do not have to spend a day off for the test date.

Motor Vehicle Inspection for Import Cars FAQ

If you register your import car yourself on a test date, it can take between 5-6 weeks, depending on the canton. If the check is carried out by the import butler, the process only takes 5 working days.

An MFK date cannot be announced before the vehicle is delivered to the collection point. The import-butler partly receives express appointments from the road traffic office, which have to be taken within one hour.

If the car is inspected by the import-butler, its eligibility for registration applies to the whole of Switzerland.

If the road traffic office finds fault with the vehicle, you can either have it repaired by our partner (Rowilag AG) or have the vehicle moved to the garage of your choice at your expense.
