Cambridge Auto Electric 2017 Ltd suspended from issuing WoFs

29 March 2019


WOF ALERT – Cambridge Auto Electric 2017 Ltd suspended from issuing WoFs

The NZ Transport Agency has immediately suspended vehicle inspector Oliver Wilson and his inspecting organisation Cambridge Auto Electric 2017 Ltd in the Waikato.

During three site reviews carried out since 2017 by the NZ Transport Agency, Mr Wilson continued to display an inability to undertake Warrant of Fitness inspections in accordance with Land Transport rules and regulations. Most seriously, he failed to identify corrosion and seatbelt damage on a vehicle he was inspecting. Mr Wilson also failed a short theory test, indicating poor knowledge of the Vehicle Inspection Requirements Manual.

We are unaware of specific concerns relating to other individual vehicles however, due to the poor quality of Mr Wilson’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 from Cambridge Auto Electric 2017 Ltd to get their vehicle rechecked.

The NZ Transport Agency will contact around 900 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.

On our website we have further information about the regulatory compliance review and warrant of fitness information for customers.
