WOF while you wait – on request.

What is a WoF inspection?

A WoF or Warrant of Fitness inspection is a general safety check. The aspects inspected are set out in our Vehicle Inspection Requirements Manual (VIRM) and include:

  • Tyre condition
  • Brake operation
  • Structural condition (rust is not allowed in certain areas)
  • Lights
  • Glazing (is your windscreen safe?)
  • Windscreen washers and wipers
  • Doors (do 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)

If you’ve modified your car, motorcycle, van, or other light vehicle, you may need low volume vehicle certification. Find out if you need a certificate plate and how to get one.

What a WoF isn’t!

A WoF is not a pre-purchase inspection. It doesn’t include several areas of a vehicle’s condition, like:

  • Engine, clutch, gearbox, and differential
  • Lubricant levels and condition
  • Brake pad thickness or life expectancy
  • Paint work condition and rust in non-structural areas

*We offer extensive pre-purchase inspections when purchasing a new vehicle.

Book an inspection now to ensure your peace of mind.

Your WoF Label

If your vehicle passes its WoF inspection, the inspector will apply a WoF label on the inside of your front windscreen – on the driver’s side. A punched-out circle on the label will show the month your warrant expires. You will need to get your next warrant before the expiry date on the label.

*If your vehicle fails its WoF inspection, we will discuss the options available for you to bring your vehicle up to WoF standard.
