Car Inspection in Zambia

All used vehicles imported from Japan to Zambia must undergo a “Road Worthiness Inspection” performed by JEVIC. JEVIC (Japan Export Vehicle Inspection Center) is a strict vehicle safety inspection test. The vehicular test inspects the vehicle for the following areas:

  • Safe tires
  • Good working brakes
  • Constant velocity joints in good condition
  • Genuine mileage
  • No damaged chassis
  • No major rust
  • All lights must work efficiently

JEVIC ensures that the vehicle is safe to drive on the harsh terrain of Africa. This inspection is mandatory in Zambia. In addition, only left-hand drive vehicles are allowed to be imported in Zambia, except for utility vehicles like ambulance and fire engine.
