Transport Malta has been slammed for making “substandard” random checks on cars that have passed the VRT.
“If Transport Malta expects a certain level of seriousness in the way VRT tests are conducted, it cannot then conduct post-VRT checks in such a substandard way that does not match the standards imposed on the operators,” the Administrative Review Tribunal said.
The tribunal was hearing an appeal over a decision taken by Transport Malta (TM) to penalise a VRT garage after a vehicle it had passed was found to have deficiencies that should have failed it. The tribunal revoked the penalty.
In a random post-VRT inspection, two TM inspectors found a number of faults that should have failed it.
