VEHICLE TEST STATION – please read before attending your test

Upon attending your appointment at Moorhey Street for your vehicle to be tested, you must be aware of the following and ensure full compliance at all times:

  • Arrive at least 10 minutes early for your test – late arrivals will be sent away and must pay to re-book
  • Ensure your engines are hot before attending so the tester can complete the emissions test
  • Ensure your fire extinguishers and first aid kits are easily accessible for inspection
  • Only one person per vehicle may attend
  • Drivers must remain in the waiting area and must not approach the tester at any point during inspection of the vehicle
  • Test results issued are final. Drivers must not challenge the tester on the result of the vehicle test. If your vehicle fails and you wish to complain you must do so in writing
