The NZ Transport Agency has immediately suspended vehicle inspector Mr Brian McEvoy and his inspecting organisation Beemac Motors in Tokoroa. The suspension notice was served today.
Mr McEvoy is the sole vehicle inspector at Beemac Motors and has a long history of non-compliance. Recent reviews of his work identified further non-compliance such as failure to identify corrosion and not properly inspecting steering, driving pedals, the engine and brakes.
The NZ Transport Agency will contact all 1,316 affected vehicle owners individually as soon as possible to advise them on recheck options. Vouchers will be provided.
We are unaware of specific concerns relating to individual vehicles however, due to the poor quality of Mr McEvoy’s inspections there is a possibility that some vehicles may have been incorrectly passed. For this reason, we strongly encourage people who have a current Warrant of Fitness issued by Mr McEvoy to get their vehicle rechecked.
There will be no further comment on this alert.
The NZ Transport Agency has records of all WOF inspections. Should we have any concerns about the inspection and certification of your vehicle’s WOF we will contact you directly, using the personal information recorded on the vehicle owner’s file.
If you have moved address or changed contact number in the past year and have not updated this, please do so by phoning the Transport Agency on 0800 108 809.
