In conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya festive season, Puspakom has announced that it is offering free Voluntary Vehicle Inspection (VVI) checks for all private vehicles. The free VVI service will be available until July 5 at all Puspakom branches throughout the country except those in Shah Alam, Taman Bukit Maluri, Mak Mandin and Kota Bharu.

“For the Hari Raya festive season last year, a similar campaign was conducted, in which more than 1,500 owners of private cars had their vehicles checked under the VVI for free. This year, our goal is to get 2,500 vehicles to do the free VVI,” Puspakom CEO Mohammed Shukor Ismail said.

“We hope that more private motorists will take the opportunity to check their vehicles, as VVI is a voluntary inspection and not mandatory. It is intended to ensure safe use of vehicles on the road and allows the vehicle owner to identify any problems that may arise and pose a danger to the driver, passengers and other road users,” he added.

The inspection process only takes 30 minutes. If faults or problems are found, customers can then be referred to a qualified repair shop to repair their vehicle. The checklist has a total of 25 items, and tests include that of emissions, suspension and brakes.

The company said it will extend opening hours at a number of branches in conjunction with the upcoming festive period. The centres listed above will be open on Saturday, June 25 and July 2, from 8 am to 5 pm.
