Warrant Of Fitness (WOF) expired on ...

The WOF is a vehicle inspection that checks that minimum safety standards are met, and indicates that the vehicle is roadworthy.

Without a current WOF certificate, this vehicle cannot legally be on the road.

All vehicles over 5 years old, have WOFs issued for a 6 month period.

For vehicles newer than 5 years, WOFs are issued for a 12 month period.

We suggest you have a WOF inspection before you purchase the vehicle as it may reveal faults that are costly to fix.

This can be done at any number of WOF inspection stations across New Zealand (for example Vehicle Testing New Zealand).

If the vehicle does not pass its initial inspection, you have 28 days to rectify faults and have the vehicle rechecked by the same inspection station at no extra charge.
