You will need this authorisation if you intend to examine and test vehicles in Western Australia.
Vehicle owners may need to have their vehicles examined if they:
- intend to register their vehicle in Western Australia
- have received a defect notice for their vehicle (also known as a yellow sticker or work order)
- have modified their vehicle (e.g. changed vehicle dimensions, engine, etc.)
- need to have their vehicle examined annually (e.g. buses, regular passenger transport, and on-demand transport)
Only authorised examiners and members of the police force may examine a vehicle and issue a certificate of inspection.
The premises where the examination is carried out must be an approved inspection station.
