Abstract

In this study, the authors examined the development of competence items for vehicle inspectors of private vehicle inspection companies. The study was based on a literature review of relevant inspections and analysis of vehicle inspector competence items, as well as three rounds of Delphi technique questionnaires. The authors invited 19 vehicle inspection professionals, which included automobile experts, practical workers, vehicle inspection company administrators and supervising authority persons to complete a three-round survey that was projected using a Delphi technique. The authors employed descriptive statistics and used nonparametric statistics, Kolmogorov-Smirnov (K-S) One Sample Test. The results showed that competence items using seventeen items were divided into four domains. The main finding of this study provides guidelines for vehicle inspectors of private vehicle inspection companies, something that could be a reference framework for developing vehicle inspection courses in college education and industrial training.
