WOF In Manukau

Having a regular Warrant of Fitness (WOF) inspection on your vehicle ensures you meet the required safety standards and should not be ignored as you may increase the risk of getting into an accident or receiving a fine. At ZOYZ we provide quality service and assurance to your vehicle and customer safety.

  • Checking lights

  • Tyre Condition
  • Steering and Suspension
  • Safety belts
  • Fuel System
  • Airbags

Difference between WOF and COF

The common WOF is made to check for our personal vehicle use, but the Certificate of Fitness (COF) is a regular check for heavy vehicles such as trucks or larger trailers, and is also checked for commercially used passenger vehicles such as Taxis, Rental cars, Uber and Shuttles etc. At ZOYZ we provide WOF and COF repairs in a professional manner and ensure you have a safe vehicle to drive on New Zealand roads. ZOYZ Auto Services will provide you with a clear and detailed Warrant of Fitness inspection and make sure your vehicle is up to date and road worthy. We run a series of tests to ensure your vehicle meets the required standards of New Zealand. For any further questions just call us on 09-2770391 and we would be happy to help.

How Long Is a Wof Valid In New Zealand?

A WoF is valid for 12 months in New Zealand. When your WoF expires, you have 28 days to get your vehicle inspected and brought back to compliance requirements. During this time window, you cannot drive your vehicle freely on the road, except for taking it to the authorised service centre for WoF.

What happens If my Car fails in Wof?

You are prohibited by NZ law to drive your vehicle if it has failed the WoF unless you get the car repaired and get a new WoF in time. You get 28 days to bring your vehicle to compliance and get any due repairs done. It is recommended to get your vehicle repaired from the same workshop that performs WoF in order to save time and avoid discrepancies.

Can I Drive without WoF in New Zealand?

No, you cannot drive your vehicle without WoF or even with an expired one. A vehicle with expired or no WoF will be impounded and sent under the hydraulic press. You get 28 days to bring your vehicle back to compliance and make it safe for roads. Also, it is recommended not to leave WoF for the last minute.

How Much Is a Cost for WoF in New Zealand?

The cost varies depending on the model and make. However, at most authorised centres, you can get the warrant of fitness for $50-$60. You can look around and compare prices to find the best deal. In case your vehicle requires any major repair to be able to get WoF, it is best to run the numbers to see if the additional hassles are worth your time and money. If your vehicle is too old, consider scrapping it instead.
