In New Zealand, all vehicles must undergo a regular Warrant of Fitness inspection to ensure that they are safe and roadworthy. A W.O.F. is a comprehensive inspection that is conducted by a qualified inspector to check that a vehicle meets the minimum safety standards set by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA).
It is important to note that the W.O.F. inspection is not a substitute for regular maintenance and servicing, and drivers should still ensure that their vehicles are well-maintained and in good condition between inspections.
During a W.O.F. inspection, Auto Super Shoppes qualified inspectors will check a range of components on the vehicle, including the brakes, steering, suspension, lights, tyres, and seatbelts. They will also check for any signs of rust, corrosion, or other structural damage that could compromise the safety of the vehicle.
If the vehicle passes the W.O.F. inspection, it will be issued with a W.O.F. certificate, which is valid for either six or twelve months depending on the age of the vehicle. If your vehicle fails the inspection, you will be given a list of necessary repairs or replacements along with a competitive estimate for repairs that must be made before a new warrant of fitness can be issued.
