Can I wait until 10 October to renew my documents?

You have up to 11.59pm, 10 October 2020 to renew your documents. However, to ensure vehicle safety is maintained, if your WoF/CoF is temporarily extended we encourage you to take your vehicle for its WoF/CoF at your earliest convenience. As longer wait times are expected leading up to October, we recommend you drop by your local inspection site or book in advance so that your vehicle is compliant by 11.59pm, 10 October 2020.

If your driver licence/endorsement is temporarily extended, we encourage you to visit a licensing agent (such as AA, VTNZ and others) before 10 October to allow enough time for your application to be completed, and to help avoid longer wait times at the agent counter. Please ensure you take the correct documents required with you.
