MOT car testing (KTEO) on Skopelos and Alonissos seems to be something that car owners on these islands do not have to go through anymore as long as you don’t take your car of the island.

There are two MOT car testing places on Skiathos so if you want to go there all you have to do is make a call, send the car over, they will pick it up from the boat, do the testing and get it back to you. A certificate costs 65 euros without any repairs to the car.
