You will require this authorisation if you intend to examine and test vehicles for the purposes of vehicle licensing in Western Australia. A vehicle must have been examined and granted a certificate of inspection before it can be licensed. Only authorised examiners and members of the police force can grant certificates of inspection.
In metropolitan areas, this authorisation is only available through an annual tender process. In rural areas, you may register your interest for receiving this authorisation at any time of year.
Once you have passed the authorisation process, the Department provides a training service that you must complete before you are able to examine and test vehicles.
The premises where the examination is carried out must also be approved at an inspection station for the purpose of examining and testing vehicles. Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
