When Do I Need To Renew My WoF?

All vehicles registered before 2000 need to renew their WoF every six months. Vehicles registered after the 1st of January 2000 only need to have their WoF renewed every 12 months. A WoF is carried out to make sure that your vehicle is roadworthy and safe, so it is worthwhile to make sure that you get your vehicle inspected regularly.


What Does a WoF inspection cover?

A WoF inspection at Grimmer Motors includes checking your vehicles:

  • Brakes
  • Exhaust system

    A mechanic performing a WOF inspection.

  • Fuel system
  • Tyre condition
  • The structural condition of your vehicle  (for example, we check for rust)
  • Vehicle lights
  • Windows
  • Windscreen washers and wipers
  • Doors
  • Safety belts
  • Airbags (if your vehicle has them)
  • Speedometer
  • Steering and suspension systems

What Happens If I Fail A WoF?

It’s important to keep in mind that under NZ law you can only drive your vehicle on the road once it has failed a WoF inspection if you are driving it to be repaired, so it makes sense to get your vehicle fixed up ASAP. We’ll aim to fix your WoF-related issues as quickly and effectively as possible. Small repairs can often be carried out on the same day as your inspection.
