General Information

If your vehicle has been previously registered in New Zealand but is now de-registered; or If the vehicle is a unregistered import it will need Compliance Certification to be used in New Zealand;

Entry Certification, also known as Compliance, is a process for determining the suitability of a vehicle to enter the NZ fleet and be operated on our roads. As such the requirements are much more stringent than for a WOF.

The Certification Process involves determining compliance with the relevant vehicle standards (verification of ownership, frontal impact, emissions etc) and inspecting the vehicle to ensure it is of a suitable standard to be put onto the roads. We examine vehicle structure, brakes, steering, suspoension, interior safety features and more. This is a higher standard than in-service inspections.

The inspection process involves the removal of wheels, brake linings, guard trim, interior trim and any panels that cover the vehicle structure or essential safety features such as seat belts. The vehicle is then inspected for compliance with relevant manufacturers' specifications, damage, corrosion, rust and excessive wear.

Drivesure Vehicle Testing provide imported vehicle Entry Certification to the industry, and operate Compliance Centres across Auckland.
