Diesel Car, Ute, Van Warrant of Fitness in Hamilton

Warrant of Fitness (WOF) for diesel vehicles:

Just like petrol vehicles, diesel-powered cars also need a Warrant of Fitness once every year or six months (depending on their age). Along with a valid road users licence, a Warrant of Fitness is required in order to legally drive your diesel car, ute or van in New Zealand.

Diesel vehicles give off more emissions than petrol vehicles. For this reason, extra care should be taken when examining the exhaust.


What does a Diesel Warrant of Fitness cover?

A Warrant of Fitness covers the following things:

  • Checking brake operation
  • Checking tyre condition and tread depth
  • Examining the structural condition of the vehicle (rust is not allowed in certain areas)
  • Checking that all car lights are working properly
  • Checking the windscreen
  • Checking the windscreen washers and wipers
  • Making sure all the doors work correctly
  • Making sure safety features such as seatbelts and airbags are in good condition and working correctly
  • Making sure the speedometer and odometer work correctly
  • Examining the steering and suspension system
  • Checking the exhaust for leaks and/or excessive noise
  • Checking the fuel system for leaks
  • and much more
