What a warrant inspection covers

The WoF inspection is a general safety check. The aspects checked are set out in the NZTA Vehicle inspection requirements manual and include:

  • tyre condition (including tread depth)
  • 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)
  • air bags (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 a low volume vehicle certificate.

What a warrant is not

A WoF is not a prepurchase inspection. It doesn’t include many areas of a vehicle's condition. For example it doesn't check:

  • Engine, clutch, gearbox and differential condition.
  • Lubricant levels and condition.
  • Brake pad thickness or life expectancy, unless they are visibly below safe limits.
  • Paint work condition and some rust in non-structural areas.
