What is a repair certificate?

Repair certification

When VTNZ inspects your vehicle they may discover that the vehicle you’re importing requires repairs, or has had repairs to fix structural damage or deterioration, it may require repair certification before it can be registered. You may also need repair certification if you want to have your vehicle re-registered.

Where repair is needed

Where vehicles need repairs, the law requires that the repairs must restore the vehicle to a similar condition – within 'safe tolerance' – to when they were manufactured. This applies to all vehicles and all types of repairs: structural, mechanical and electrical.
