Offers Full Shaken Sevice

Shaken is the official vehicle inspection that all cars on Japanese public roads have to undergo three years after initial registration and every other year thereafter. Auto Direct offers a full shaken service.

All you need to do is drop off your vehicle at our showroom and we will take care everything or we can pick up and drop off the car to your home.

The shaken consists of three main areas:

  1. The vehicle must pass a safety inspection at the official transportation office (Rikuun-kyoku) and also pass through further detailed inspections at a service center (Shaken-jyo). Then your car will have necessary repairs and adjustments if needed.
  2. Weight tax which is based on your vehicle weight will be charged.
  3. Compulsory Automobile Liability Insurance needs to be renewed or purchased.

The Shaken usually costs from 120,000yen to 300,000yen depending on the condition, weight and engine size of the vehicle.

Documents needed for Shaken

  1. Vehicle registration paper (Shaken-sho)
  2. Compulsory insurance certificate (Jibaiseki)
  3. Receipt of vehicle tax (Nouzei shoumei)
