Jakarta (ANTARA) – The provincial government of Jakarta should set tariff limits for the implementation of independent vehicle emissions testing at kiosks and workshops, said public policy analyst Agus Pambagio.
According to Pambagio, the general tariff for emissions testing for four-wheeled and two-wheeled vehicles cannot be determined. He felt that companies, with official garages, have the right to set their commercial price.

He explained that several official workshops also provide free emissions testing services if the vehicle owner uses their other services.
However, due to the high demand, official and general workshops with emission testing tools are now opening special vehicle emission testing services, Pambagio said.
“I’m saying that if (vehicle owners) use their service, emissions checks are usually free. Now there is a special emissions testing service, but it’s up to the workshops to set the price because they are private, ”he explained.
