Pre Purchase Inspection

Be sure of what you are buying with a Drivesure Pre-Purchase Inspection.

The purchase of a motor vehicle is the often the largest purchase people will make.

We give the vehicle a thorough check and road test, using the latest diagnostic equipment on brakes, battery, alternator and more.

Not in Auckland ? We can take payment over the phone, and fax or email the inspection report to you. You can also speak to the inspector yourself  if you have any questions.

Buyers: use the Drivesure Pre-Purchase Inspection report to clearly show the repairs needed and help you bargain a better price.

Sellers: use the Drivesure Pre-Purchase Inspection report to assure purchasers of the vehicle condition to help a quick sale.

A Drivesure Pre-Purchase Inspection is:

Fast and easy.

An inspection is done at a Drivesure Vehicle Testing Station and takes about one hour from start to finish.  We use specialist brake, suspension and engine diagnostic equipment and can usually do them the same day.

You will receive a comprehensive written report emailed to you directly, and piece of mind.


Just $165 for a full inspection in-station. A small price to pay to be sure you’re not buying a lemon.


We inspect all makes and models of cars, vans and light commercial vehicles.


You can be sure we have no connection with either the car or its seller, so you are getting an honest, realistic appraisal of the vehicle.

Clear and concise.

You get a clear, easy to understand inspection report that details any issues found. If you have any questions, we’ll be happy to talk you through the report. Please be aware that all Pre Puchase Inspections are limited to visual/diagnostic only.
