Changes to Warrant of Fitness

June 2014
Mechanic WOF

From 1 July 2014 the Transport Agency is changing how often some vehicles need to have a WoF inspection. Vehicles first registered anywhere in the world on or after 1 January 2000 will move to annual WoF inspections for their lifetime.

For new vehicles, after an initial inspection, another WoF inspection won’t be required until the third anniversary of their first registration.

The length of time a WoF is issued for is calculated based on the vehicle’s date of first registration in New Zealand or overseas. Older vehicles registered pre-2000 will retain six-monthly inspections.
