If a defect notice has been issued, you must have the vehicle
inspected at the Vehicle Inspection Station, Dickson, or by an authorised
examiner, in accordance with the instructions in the notice.
Payment of an inspection fee is required when the vehicle is presented for inspection.
A further defect notice may be issued if other faults are identified at that inspection.
Depending on the severity of the fault(s), the use of the vehicle may be restricted
until the notice is cleared. In some instances, vehicles may not be driven at all and must
be towed or transported away.
Defect notices must be cleared within 14 days of the date of issue.
Failure to clear a defect notice may result in suspension and, ultimately, cancellation of the vehicle's registration.
