Currently, Tasjeel owns and operates 22 sites and four mobile units in Dubai, Sharjah, Al Dhaid and Kalba. All Tasjeel sites are equipped with the latest testing and inspection machinery and qualified staff. To date, Tasjeel has tested over 20 million vehicles across its 89 testing bays in the country.
