Jersey's government is looking for companies to recommend how MOT-style vehicle inspections in the island should be carried out.
A tender has been opened for companies to come forward with proposals about how a PTI (Private Technical Inspection) scheme would operate.
Driver and Vehicle Standards planned to introduce inspections by 2022 as part of the States' commitment to the 1968 Vienna Convention - an international agreement to make sure vehicles registered in the island are roadworthy.
However, in September 2019 a States scrutiny hearing heard that the introduction of the tests could be delayed by as much as a year, as no firms had come forward to take on the work of running the scheme.
Inspections were introduced for mopeds, motorcycles, minibuses and commercial vehicles in April 2019.
