Shaken Renewal

One Day Shaken
 What is Shaken?

Shaken refers to the mandatory roadworthy inspection all vehicles must go through. The first shaken renewal is due in 3 years for a car bought new and every 2 years thereafter.

A vehicle that has been properly maintained over the years will meet shaken requirements with only minor adjustments needed.  The renewal costs will usually be less than expected.

If you are not sure when your shaken is due we are happy to explain and send you an early reminder.

Our shaken service includes pickup and delivery, shaken inspection, minor adjustments and payment of renewal taxes.

Please contact us for a free quote to renew your shaken.
