Transeksta, an association of Lithuanian roadworthiness inspection service providers, supports the idea, saying the companies currently have no funds to raise wages for their employees.

According to Renaldas Gabartas, the association's spokesman, roadworthiness test fees should be raised by around 2 euros to meet the needs of some of the companies.

The ministry expects to have the new methodology ready by December, but it is not clear yet when the new fees will come into effect.
