Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is reminding New Zealanders it will be illegal to drive or use vehicles with expired driver and vehicle licensing and inspection documents after 10 October 2020.
All warrants of fitness, certificates of fitness, driver licences, vehicle licences (regos) and other certifications that were temporarily extended due to COVID-19 must be renewed by 11.59pm, Saturday 10 October.
After 10 October 2020, the following applies:
If you operate rental vehicles and have let the CoFs and vehicle licences (regos) lapse due to lower demand, please consider renewing these now prior to the summer holiday period where local travel may increase demand for vehicle rentals.
NZ Police and local government authorities are reinstating standard enforcement procedures from 11 October 2020. This means they have the discretion to issue fines or take further action when they find an expired vehicle inspection certificate, rego or driver licence.
