Just purchased a car for cheap as to make some money from and its green stickered im just wondering if you have to take it to the testing station or just a normal WOF place! I know you used to be able to go to a normal WOF place but havint been in this situation for a few years and a mate says green or pink both have to go to testing station now.

Cheers people

green/pink sticker can be removed at a licenced vehicle testing facility, so longs as they do wof only and no repairs (as I understand) - so VTNZ or any other independent testing facility that is a WOF/COF only place

oh well I tried

Sorry I just didint take your post right.
I researched up afterwards and saw that the law got changed a few years ago as my mate said so sorry for that.

Driver-1ollie, Mar 9, 2011, 11:23 pm

The law didn't change, the NZTA's interpretation of it did. Last year too, not a few years ago. Where you need to go is a Transport Service Delivery Agent (TSDA) which in general terms means VTNZ, VINZ and AA but there are a couple independents as well.

but.there is alot not printed on the site or known to public

Correct or more so find out why it was green stickered then,you have a place to start before going to vtnz and getting raped.

i went to vtnz with a clients car with green sticker for no tail lights. and got charged 100$ that was over a year ago now also vtnz near industrial bunnings rewarewa road. is all i can tell myabe they make prices how ever they like .
the coppers will have written a note as to why it was green stickerd.

Driver-intrade, Mar 10, 2011, 8:56 am


Nope. The issue date is irrelevant as to who can remove it.

Driver-smac, Mar 10, 2011, 9:06 am

you took a risk

Driver-spead, Mar 10, 2011, 9:42 am


Whether or not the law should be applied depends on previous offending!!

For somebody who actively promotes 'civil disobedience' (or whatever) it's surprising you want the cop to be judge and jury.

was a copper targeting people who live on jachts . when i went to the jachtingplace later on dokland-5 the copper pulled my van up and inspected my tyres and windscreen whipers. but did not say anything, but i am sure it was him. The lights on the car with greensticker where both smashed from a wrongly attachedtrailer i was told. and i think it had no wof as he had ordered new secoundhand lights to fix and pass the wof later on. greensticker note had a fine for no wof on also that would be waved if its complyed within 14 days or something.
and the note said no driving at night lol

Driver-intrade, Mar 10, 2011, 9:58 am

read my post mate,it says what it was issued for,not the date.

Driver-1fordluva, Mar 10, 2011, 11:59 am

Your lucky, how long was you doing wheel spins for. Dam lucky you didn't get the book thrown at you I would of.
