It does not cover non-safety related items such as whether or not the air conditioner or electric windows are working. These would be items inspected only on request as part of a general check or service.
What if a fault is found?
As required by law, you will be presented with a “Rejection Slip” that states the items that need addressing or repair. All of the items listed must be repaired within 7 days, otherwise, you will require a new RWC. If you suspect your vehicle could use some TLC, It’s always a good idea to have your vehicle checked over and repaired if needed prior to requesting a RWC. This will avoid the 7 day time limit and the possibility of paying for another RWC.
Can you repair the faults?
Yes! If you would like to use your own mechanic you are more than welcome to. Your vehicle must return to us within 7 days, if the fixes are adequate, you will receive your Certificate of Road Worthiness.
What if I bring my car back after 7 days?
