Warrant of fitness

A warrant of fitness (WOF) is a regular check to ensure that your vehicle meets required safety standards.

It’s your job to keep your vehicle up to WOF condition at all times. For example, while tyres on your vehicle may pass on the day of your warrant inspection, you’ll need to replace them as soon as the tread gets to the minimum depth. If you wait until the next inspection before replacing them, you increase your risk of having a crash or receiving a fine.

How often a WOF is required

Vehicles first registered anywhere in the world before 1 January 2000 will need a bi annual (every 6 months) WOF inspections for their lifetime.

Vehicles first registered anywhere in the world on or after 1 January 2000 will need annual (every 12 months) WOF inspections for their lifetime.

For new vehicles, after an initial inspection, another WOF inspection won't be required until the 3rd anniversary of their first registration.

It’s illegal to drive a vehicle…

*If it doesn't meet WOF requirements.

*If it doesn't display a valid WOF label.

*Your insurance may be void while driving without a WOF.

You can drive your vehicle on the road under these circumstances only when taking it somewhere for repair or to get a new WOF – providing it’s safe to do so.
