Know what repairs are required to obtain a CoF

VINZ can provide a Pre-Certificate of Fitness (CoF) Inspection for your heavy goods vehicle (over 6,000kg) or passenger service vehicle, so you know what repairs may be required to obtain a COF.

This Inspection provides an independent, detailed assessment and report on the condition of your vehicle. You can then use the report to complete any necessary work, prior to a CoF inspection.

A high CoF pass rate will protect your vehicle’s Operator Rating System (ORS) score.
