Abu Dhabi, 20 February, 2017: ADNOC Distribution announced today the opening of a Vehicle Inspection Centre (VIC) for light vehicles within the Motor World service station located in the Al Shamkha area in Abu Dhabi.
The opening ceremony was attended by Saeed Mubarak Al Rashdi, Acting Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Distribution, Brigadier Ali Khalfan Al Dhaheri, Director-General of Central Operations at Abu Dhabi Police (ADP), and a number of ADNOC Distribution and ADP officials.
The new facility provides inspection for light vehicles, as well as licensing and registration services for customers through an Abu Dhabi Police Vehicle Licensing Section office located within the premises. The VIC also incorporates branches of selected car insurance companies.
ADNOC Distribution is also set to open a car care workshop in the Motor World service station that will complement the VIC to provide customers with vehicle maintenance services.
Saeed Mubarak Al Rashdi, Acting Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Distribution, said: 'The opening of Motor World vehicle inspection centre aligns with our ambitious expansion plan to meet the requirements of our customers across the UAE. With this new facility, we are responding to the growing demand for convenient vehicle inspection and registration services in a prime location that also includes Motor World, the dedicated market for buying and selling used cars in the city of Abu Dhabi.”
He added: 'We have fitted out the VIC with state-of-the-art inspection equipment to ensure the highest inspection standards and exceed customer expectations. The entire inspection process offered at the new facility will take no longer than eight minutes. '
On the occasion of the opening of the new VIC, ADNOC Distribution reiterated its commitment to developing the capacities of VIC personnel in line with the latest testing standards and requirements. The ADNOC Distribution VIC network currently employs more than 100 Emiratis in various administrative, supervisory, and technical positions – making up over 50 per cent of its total workforce.
Al Rashdi also revealed plans to integrate vehicle inspection services within the company’s mobile application to offer its customers streamlined access. This combination of services and application will enable motorists to prepay inspection fees, request re-inspection, review payment history, and make advance bookings for inspections.
The Motor World service station features six islands with 12 dispensers offering E-Plus 90, Special 95 and Super 98 fuels, and two islands with one dispenser each allocated to Green Diesel. In the future, the facilities available will be further expanded through the installation of an additional island with two dispensers that will offer natural gas for vehicles (NGV).
Apart from refuelling, the Motor World service station provides a range of complementary services including an ADNOC Oasis retail store, a bakery, an ATM machine, a mosque, and several fast food outlets. In addition, it features one lane for manual car wash, two lanes for automatic car wash, 10 lanes for oil change, and an LPG cylinder depot with a capacity of 400 cylinders.
The opening of the centre takes the total number of ADNOC Distribution vehicle inspection centres in the emirate of Abu Dhabi to 21, including eight centres in Abu Dhabi city and its suburban areas, six centres in Al Ain, and seven centres in the Western Region.
