The NZ Transport Agency has suspended vehicle inspector Brad Harrison and his inspecting organisation Kerikeri Autohaus Limited.
The NZ Transport Agency is concerned that the site may have been operating with an unauthorised vehicle inspector issuing WoFs on pre-signed check sheets, and that there is a strong possibility that some vehicles may have been incorrectly passed.
For this reason, we strongly encourage people who have a current Warrant of Fitness issued from Kerikeri Autohaus Limited to get their vehicles rechecked.
The NZ Transport Agency will contact around 520 affected vehicle owners individually as soon as possible to advise them on recheck options. Vouchers will be provided.
Note for customers:
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 by both phone and letter, 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.
