A warrant of fitness (WOF) is a visual safety inspection which is required every 6 months for vehicles 6 years and older and every 12 months for newer vehicles.

At KVS we have 6 fully qualified WOF inspectors and they are all experienced in all aspects of vehicle servicing and repairs in case there are any issues with your vehicle as a result of your Warrant of Fitness Inspection. Most repair work can be completed onsite quickly and efficiently by our team of technicians and your vehicle then rechecked and your Warrant issued.

We can also refer, organize and recommend quality repairers if we cannot complete any required repairs such as windscreens, rust repairs or panelbeating.

If our WOF inspectors find any issues with your vehicle, the repair work can be completed onsite quickly and efficiently by our team of technicians. Your vehicle will then be re-inspected and a WOF issued.

You will find Kendal Vehicle Services mechanical services particularly convenient if you live or work around the following areas:

Christchurch, Burnside, Avonhead, Harewood, Ilam, Airport, Bishopdale, Russley, Bryndwr.

Did you know
It’s a good idea to combine your WOF and vehicle service, because WOF inspections do not cover all aspects of your vehicle. For example engine, clutch, gearbox and differential; lubricant levels and condition; brake pad thickness or life expectancy; and paint work condition and rust in non-structural areas are not checked in WOF inspections, but they can be checked as part of a vehicle service.
