ENOC’s Tasjeel in collaboration with Sharjah Asset Management has broken ground on its first site offering testing services for both light and heavy vehicles.
Located in the Al Sajaa area of Sharjah, the new site brings the total number of testing centres in the emirate to 13, a statement said. Spanning a total area of 32,777sqm, the new Tasjeel site will have five testing lanes for light vehicles, and five testing lanes for heavy vehicles. It will also contain a workshop, as well as a food court, including a drive-thru restaurant.
In addition to offering seamless testing and registration processes for both categories of vehicles, the site will offer a comprehensive range of automotive facilities, including vehicle and driver licensing services, the statement continued.
The ground-breaking was attended by His Excellency Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi, Chairman of Sharjah Asset Management, Sheikh Saud bin Mohammed bin Saud Al Qasimi, CEO of the Real Estate Sector in Sharjah Assets Management, His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group Chief Executive Officer of ENOC, as well as Major General Saif Al Zari Al Shamsi, Commander-in-Chief of Sharjah Police, along with a number of officers and managers.
