In conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations, Puspakom is once again kicking off its annual free private vehicle inspection campaign. The campaign will run from 2 May to 12 May 2021 from 8 am to 5 pm.
Owners who wish to go for a free inspection can head to any Puspakom centres except for the Shah Alam and Pasir Gudang branches.
To adhere to the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) of the ongoing Movement Control Order (MCO), visitors are encouraged to make an appointment on the Puspakom website before heading for an inspection.
The fee that they will have to pay upon registration will be returned to them once their inspection is completed.
Puspakom CEO, Shukor Ismail, said in a statement that even though Malaysians are not allowed to return to their respective home towns for the festive season, it is still important to have their vehicle conditions checked as their cars are used to travel around town daily.
The free inspection will include checks on 25 items: brakes, tyres, lights, emission, side slip, suspension, windscreen tint, as well as the top carriage and undercarriage of the car.
Other than that, Puspakom will also be deploying their mobile unit to 2 locations to carry out free inspections. The first stop will be at Wisma DRB-Hicom in Shah Alam on 3 May 2021, the second stop will be located in Stadium Cheras, Kuala Lumpur on 8 May 2021.
The mobile unit will operate from 9 am to 4 pm on the respective dates.
