Warrant of Fitness (WoF)

A Warrant of Fitness (WoF) is a regular check to ensure your vehicle meets required safety standards. Vehicles first registered anywhere in the world on or after 1 January 2000 will need annual WoF inspections for their lifetime. For new vehicles, after an initial inspection, another WoF inspection won’t be required until the 3rd anniversary of their first registration.

We carry out independent WoFs in accordance with LTNZ requirements, ensuring your vehicle is legally compliant and safe for driving on the road.

The WoF inspection is a general safety check of the following aspects of your vehicle, but not limited to:

  • Tyre condition (including tread depth)
  • Brake operation
  • Structural condition (rust is not allowed in certain areas)
  • Lights
  • Glazing (ensuring your windscreen is safe)
  • Windscreen washers and wipers
  • Doors (ensuring they open and close safely)
  • Safety belts (must not be damaged or overly faded; buckles must work properly)
  • Airbags (if fitted)
  • Speedometer (must be working)
  • Steering and suspension (must be safe and secure)
  • Exhaust (there must be no leaks and the exhaust must not be smoky or louder than the original exhaust system)
  • Fuel system (there must be no leaks)
