What is a Warrant of Fitness (WoF)?

A Warrant of Fitness (WoF) is a regular check to ensure that your vehicle meets required safety standards, at the time of inspection. As the owner of the car it is your duty to keep your car or any other vehicle that you own in warrantable condition at all times. Our qualified WoF authorised inspectors can help you by diagnosing all parts of your vehicle and give you the best advice.

It is not legal to drive a vehicle, if it does not:

  • Meet WoF requirements
  • Display a valid WoF label
