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:
- 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)
Effective January 2022: First aid kits must include two individually wrapped face masks in the kit. (Mask type: DIN EN 14683 TYPE1 or higher standard such as KN95/FFP2) Masks must be stored in the first aid kit, it is not sufficient to carry the masks anywhere else in the vehicle.
- (These items are inspected at the beginning of the inspection process.)
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.
