ENOC’s Tasjeel, its subsidisary for vehicle testing and registration, has conducted a ground-breaking ceremony for its first site offering testing services for both light and heavy vehicles. Located in Al Sajaa in Sharjah, the new site will be operated in collaboration with Sharjah Asset Management, bringing the total number of testing centres in the emirate to 13.
Spanning a total area of 32,777 square metres, the new site will have a total of 10 testing lanes – five each for light and heavy vehicles – as well as a workshop and a food court including a drive-through restaurant. In addition to offering a seamless testing and registration process for both light and heavy vehicles, the site will provide access to a comprehensive range of automotive facilities including vehicle and driver licensing services.
The ground-breaking was attended by Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi, Chairman of Sharjah Asset Management; Sheikh Saud bin Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi, CEO of Real Estate Sector in Sharjah Asset Management; Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC; and Major General Saif Al Zari Al Shamsi, Commander-in-Chief of Sharjah Police, along with other senior officials.
“As the first and largest testing and registration centre in the UAE, we are committed to delivering the highest standards of customer service whilst prioritising safety on the roads,” said Al Falasi. “This will be the first site to offer testing services for both light vehicles and heavy vehicles, where our knowledgeable technicians will use the very latest technologies to streamline the vehicle testing and registration renewal process.”
ENOC previously partnered with Dubai Police to set up Tasjeel in 1999, with the aim of offering fast and convenient vehicle testing services in the emirate. In 2006, Tasjeel began vehicle testing and registration services for Sharjah Police, becoming the official testing and registration provider in Sharjah.
Currently, Tasjeel owns and operates 30 sites in Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Khorfakkan, Al Dhaid, Hatta and Kalba – all of which are described as using state-of-the-art equipment – as well as three mobile units. As of 2022, Tasjeel says it has tested over 1.4 million vehicles per year across its testing bays in the country.
