MFK test in another country

Anybody know if someone can perform the regular MFK test (every 2 years for non-new cars) in another country than CH? Perhaps in a collaborating test center?

No because those are not according to the local standards.
I also doubt the german TÜV will do that for a foreign car or any other country

Not 100% sure, but an MFK in Liechtenstein should be valid in Switzerland too.

Only for a car registered in Liechtenstein at the time of the test.

MFK has to be performed at an official workshop in the canton of registration.

Actually you’re sort-of right. But it needs the permission of the registered canton with associated paperwork.

Cheapskate.

And no, there's none such.
