Regional vehicle examinations

The Department has authorised private businesses (Approved Inspection Stations) to provide vehicle examinations in regional centres and certain country areas.

  Reasons you may need to get your vehicle examined

You may need to get your vehicle examined for the following reasons:

  • You want to license (register) your vehicle in Western Australia.
  • You receive a compliance notice (often referred to as a yellow sticker, work order or defect notice).
  • You have modified your vehicle (for example: change body, engine, dimensions).
  • Your vehicle is subject to an annual examination*.
  • You want to license a repairable written-off vehicle.

*Annual examinations

Some vehicles must be examined every time the vehicle licence (registration) is renewed.

These vehicles include:

  • Buses.
  • Taxis.
  • Other types of vehicles, such as driving instructor vehicles.

You will be sent a notification letter informing you of this annual requirement. If you have not received a notification letter and you believe your vehicle may be subject to an annual examination, you should contact us.

  Step 1: Find out how much it costs to get a vehicle examined

Fees for light and heavy vehicle examinations and temporary movement permits are provided below.

Vehicle examination fees may vary between physical locations.

  Regional vehicle examination fees, by location (2017/2018)

Authorised Inspection Station (AIS) vehicle examination fees are benchmarked against the Regional Price Index (RPI) rate applicable to their location.

The RPI, developed by the Department of Regional Development, is the most appropriate measure available for calculating the cost differentials between Perth and the regions.

For more information about the RPI, please visit the Department of Regional Development.

Please note:

Goods and Services Tax (GST) was removed for vehicle examination fees from 5 October 2013.

  How to maintain your vehicle

Maintaining your vehicle ensures it is safe for you and your passengers, as well as other road users. Regular maintenance also helps your vehicle run more efficiently, thereby reducing smoky emissions with the potential to affect our health and environment. Read on for advice on how to maintain your vehicle.

Parts of your vehicle you should check and maintain

Faults such as worn steering components, defective or bald tyres, spongy brakes or faulty headlights may make a motor vehicle dangerous to the driver, passengers or other road users. It is therefore important to ensure you vehicle is regularly checked, maintained and serviced.

Items that need to be checked regularly include:

  • Brakes.
  • Lights.
  • Steering.
  • Structural rust.
  • Tyres.

Common indicators of faults

Item Check
Brakes Check brake fluid levels are correct and seek an automotive professional's help if your brakes feel spongy, need to be pumped, or pull your vehicle to one side when applied.
Coolant Check that your coolant levels are correct, according to the vehicle manufacturer's specifications.
Oil Check that your engine oil levels are correct, according to the vehicle manufacturer's specifications.
Lights Check that your lights work, do not have cracked lenses and that your headlights are correctly aligned.
Steering Seek an automotive professional's help if your vehicle wanders, has excessive play in the steering or requires continual correction.
Tyres Ensure your tread depth is 1.5mm or more, check the tyre pressure is correct, and check for damage to the tyre carcass.
Windscreen washers Check that your windscreen washing bottle levels are correct, according to the vehicle manufacturer's specifications.
