3 Inspection and certification process
For information on rechecks under COVID-19 alert levels see Technical bulletin: COVID-19 recovery
If a vehicle fails a WoF inspection, there is no fee for any subsequent inspection as long as it is done:
- within 28 days of the first inspection where the vehicle failed, and
- at the same inspecting organisation (does not have to be the same site if the inspecting organisation operates at more than one site).
- In the case of split testing for heavy vehicle brakes at CoF, the 28 days start from the completion of the second phase of the split test.
- A fee may be charged for CoF reinspections.
A fee is payable, and a new WoF or CoF inspection is required if the vehicle is presented after the 28 days have passed.
