BEIJING — New motorcycles in China will be exempt from on-spot safety inspections within the first six years of purchase from June 1, according to the Ministry of Public Security.

The new policy allows motorcycles to go through safety inspections at places where they are used, not just where the vehicles are registered.

Motorcycle owners need to acquire safety certificates without inspection on the second, fourth and fifth year after purchase while motorcycles used for more than six years need safety inspections every year.

There are over 68 million motorcycles in China.
