Default ITV test

My motorhomes ITV is due at the end of January 2020 and I was wondering about the ten year old point of law that says if is less than ten years it only needs an ITV every two years. I was told this when I went last year unknowingly. The motorhome is 2012 and so it qualifies still, good news for a change. But my question is to budding experts on here, do you think the ten years law started in 2012 or when it was registered in Spain which was 2018?
Many thanks

Hola

The frequency is based on the age of the vehicle and should be yearly after the vehicle is 10 years old - every 6 months for commercial vehicles

Thanks for your reply.
Van is May 2012 but registered in Spain January 2018(matriculated when bought with ITV January 2018) so I was wondering as the log book says renew the end of this January 2020. Oh well, fingers crossed for a pass and two more years to the next ITV huh.

The next challenge, if you could call it that, is the earliest appointment for an ITV test for my van is 11th February 2020 at Motril. OMG. I sought a Fiat garage/dealer the other day and he found the computer was down at the ITV place, so i said let's book my van in with you for a pre ITV check say Weds and that should be enough time to fix an appointment for the ITV test. But on visiting the Fiat dealer today and passing the pre test, he gave me the bad news about the wait for the full ITV test. Extraordinary surely He also said Malaga was well behind and some people have come to Motril for the ITV !!!!

I do not know if this applies everywhere. Last year when I could not get an appointment within the period I required, I went to the test centre and they gave me one for later that day. I know others who have done that too

Incidentally, paying for a pre test inspection is a waste of money. If the vehicle fails, one has a couple of weeks to put it right and then return for a free test

Regardless of where and when you have your vehicle inspected, make sure that you are not paying the full list price for the test.
There are many "agents" on internet who sell "discounted appointments" for as little as half price if you can go in off peak hours.
Even if you don't want to deal with these online companies, you can go direct to the ITV station and tell them that you are only prepared to pay the price advertised by XXX on internet. Most places will match that price rather than see you walk away.
