The MOT car testing is supposed to be done by the end of April for all cars on the Sporades but people find it hard ( with the economic crises) to send their cars to Volos and have them tested there and send back. It is quite expensive. Skopelosnews spoke with vice mayor Maggi Klonaris and she told us that a week before last Monday the municipal council informed the inhabitants of Skopelos that a mobile MOT testing unit will come to Skopelos and will then go on to Alonissos and that car owners will be given an extension until July (20th of June) when the unit probably is going to come. This only applies for cars who are registered here on Skopelos.
If people want to have their car tested now; on Skiathos there are two permanent new MOT testing businesses and people from Skopelos can send their car with the ferryboat to Skiathos and have the people from the MOT testing pick their car up and have it tested and put back on the ferry the next day. The telephone numbers for Skiathos are Sanidas 2427023800 and spokesperson for the other KTEO is 6979986473 (Athina Daki)
