    How much is the fine for no WOF?

    The Warrant of Fitness test (WOF) is a legal requirement. No vehicle can be operated without a current Warrant of Fitness. Unfortunately, if you use your vehicle without a current WOF, you will be fined $200. This fine also applies if you park your car in a public space. Unfortunately, this also means there is no grace period, the fine can be applied at any stage following the expiry.

     

    Why is it important to have a current Warrant of Fitness (WOF)?

    The legal requirement to have a current Warrant of Fitness (WOF) is not just an arbitrary rule, it ensures that you are able to stay as safe as possible whilst driving. The Warrant of Fitness test will not focus on cosmetic damage, but it will focus on structural damage. For example, structural rust can affect your chances of passing your WOF, but if it is merely cosmetic and doesn’t affect the function of your car, then you should have no problems. Things like the condition of your paint-work will also not affect your chances of passing a WOF. A valid WOF ensures that will not have your vehicle fail on you whilst you are driving it, and that is why it focuses on key safety aspects.

     

    Be careful not to ignore any signs of rust, it can affect your chances of passing the Warrant of Fitness test.

    Can you drive your car without a current Warrant of Fitness (WOF)?

    The short answer to this question is no. However, the only time you can legally drive your car that has an expired WOF is when you are taking it to have its Warrant of Fitness test. The exception to this is that if your car is unsafe to drive, then you cannot legally drive your car anywhere.

    If your car is nearing its expiry date, make sure you book in with Grimmer Motors today to find an appropriate time to properly assess it and avoid any future fines!
