COVID-19 UPDATE New Legislation on expired WOF / Registration, etc.

COVID−19 UPDATE 10.April

As of 10.April.2020, Ministry of Transport has announced new Legislation regarding temporary extending expired WOF/COF/Licence Registration/Drivers licence, etc. as follows,

 

Temporary extension of expired vehicle inspection documents during Covid-19 lockdown period

What does this new legislation do?

In order to be able to drive legally on public roads, drivers must have a current driver licence and valid vehicle certifications (including Warrants of Fitness (WoF) and Certificates of Fitness (CoF)). These requirements are enforced by NZ Police and Local Government parking wardens.
The legislation recognises that because of the COVID-19 Alert Level 4 (AL4), through no fault of their own, many New Zealanders are unable to keep these documents up-to-date.
The following documents would be deemed valid from the day the legislation is in force, for a period of up to six months:

WoFs and CoFs, driver licences, and vehicle certifications issued under the Vehicle Standards Compliance Rule that expired on or after 1 January 2020

endorsements for driver licences that expired on or after 1 March 2020.

It also enables a temporary suspension of the requirement to display a valid vehicle licence
(Rego) if the vehicle licence expired on or after 1 January 2020.

Please refer their PDF issued 10.April for the detail.
