Is your POV safe?

The 86th Vehicle Readiness Squadron Privately Owned Vehicle Inspection Center on Kapaun Air Station provides a free POV mechanical inspection to the Kaiserslautern Military Community. With more than 30,000 vehicles inspected each year, our goal is to ensure POVs are maintained and operated in accordance with USAREUR Reg 190-1.

You may be asked to replace, repair, or clean an item in order to pass the inspection. These measures are to ensure proper safety conditions and requirements. To make your POV inspection stress-free, please read on.

When you arrive at the Inspection Station:

  • PERMANENT License Plates must be properly mounted with screws/nuts/bolts
  • Temporary Plates can be mounted with zip ties, rope, wire or any means to secure plate temporarily. You also need to show us you have the means of installing permanent plates with screws/nuts/bolts/plate bracket
  • Normal operating hours are 0700-1500
  • Take a minute to review the informative signs posted along the driveway and ensure you have the following required items in your vehicle:
    • First Aid Kit (DIN 13164)
    • Warning Triangle
    • Reflective Vest
  • (These items are inspected at the beginning of the inspection process. If you don’t have these items ti will cause you to fail the inspections.)

    Without an AE Form 190-10 or 1901AA (Renewal Application), the inspectors will not begin the inspection.

    For safety reasons, please wait at the stop sign until an inspector waves you forward.
