The new Motor Vehicle Inspection Station in Hume is now open for business, replacing the old Dickson Motor Vehicle Inspection Station, which closed in May.

Local and national transport industry stakeholders joined the Minister for Regulatory Services, Gordon Ramsay, in putting their mark on a transport mural as part of the opening celebrations this week.

They viewed vehicle exhibits and inspection demonstrations, as well as participating in behind the scenes tours of facilities to further understand the work of mechanics and inspectors in keeping the roads safe.

“The diversity of those who attended the opening – from our Emergency Services and the Australian Federal Police, to disability modification vehicle engineers, and local and national heavy vehicle groups – shows the wide impact our services have to our community,” Mr Ramsay said.

“The community can feel justifiably proud that these facilities will meet Canberra’s needs well into the future.”

Located at 29 Couranga Crescent in Hume, the new inspection station has state of the art facilities making heavy vehicle inspections easier and faster and is capable of multiple bookings in different lanes, which was not possible at Dickson.

It will also support the inspection of larger combination vehicles without disconnecting each unit as was the case in Dickson.

All vehicle inspections must be booked in advance through Access Canberra on 13 22 81 and electronic payments only are accepted.

The collection of number plates after inspection or other transactions can only be done at Access Canberra Service Centres at other locations across Canberra.

The Labor/Greens spent all that taxpayer money to give themselves new facilities that gives the public ( WHO ACTUALLY PAID FOR IT ) less service ? typical self serving out of touch government.

Did you read the article? “the new inspection station has state of the art facilities making heavy vehicle inspections easier and faster and is capable of multiple bookings in different lanes, which was not possible at Dickson.

Used this a few weeks back and not bad. Except don’t understand why a Canberra connect office isn’t part of it as once finished then had to go elsewhere.

Oh and Canberra connect stuffed the bookings. I need a rego check to transfer and interstate registered car and an ID check. Two seperate bookings that were meant to be back to back except they were actually booked a day apart. When I got there I had missed my rego check as it was booked for the precious day, reluctantly they fitted me in but wanted to charge me double for missing my booking. Had to push the point that there would be a recording of my conversation with Canberra connect agent where she clearly told me bookings were both on Wednesday (which I took off to specifically have the inspection) to get them to back down on their double charge threat.
