Since 2005, the Danish motor vehicle inspection market has been gradually liberalised. It became possible for private companies to be authorised to conduct motor vehicle inspections and the state-owned monopoly was privatised. In 2007, maximum prices for motor vehicle inspections were abolished, so pricing of motor vehicle inspection is now free.
On behalf of the Competition and Consumer Authority, Incentive has carried out an evaluation of the liberalisation of the motor vehicle inspection market from a consumer perspective. We have evaluated the impact during the period from 2004 to 2013.
Summary and main conclusions are available for download.
