Riteve was founded in Costa Rica in 1998.
Riteve is highly reputed, both nationally and internationally, for its statutory-vehicle-inspection services as a result of the improvements it has brought about in the condition of vehicles, which has ultimately led to enhanced road safety in Costa Rica.
Inspections are carried out efficiently and in accordance with current vehicle legislation and customers are served in a safe, comfortable and friendly environment.
Vehicle conformity is assessed by way of objective, comprehensive, impartial and independent inspections, which are carried out by qualified personnel using high-tech equipment. Customers are provided with clear and detailed explanations of the results.
Riteve carries out periodic vehicle inspections on vehicles that are already on the country’s roads as well as one-off inspections – for example, on imported vehicles requiring initial registration.
Riteve also has the technical and operational capacity to provide other, related inspection services.
