Well seeing that they going to start re-enforcing these things, I need to get my inspection up to par. Quick question though, does the person whose name is on the Certified Copy need to be there? Or anyone can do and do the inspection process?

Do they ask for ID to confirm that you are the owner of the vehicle?

Sorry I meant the engine number, where is it? I did some looking but don't see it. Heard it is not in the easiest spot to see.

Thanks

Nope.... I just got my own done, cert. copy with a new inspection sheet attached to the back to keep in your vehicle if licensing/police stop you.

Smoked tail lights should be banned all together, been driving behind ppl with them during the day and can't see anything, at night the lights are hardly visible.

Was going to tell him darker the better for smoked lights when you going lo. Let him learn that way.

Been years I haven't gotten a sticker.

Thought I would share my inspection experience for my van (2007 BT50) this morning.

Got there for 7:50am, I was 4th inline, not long after 8am they started inspecting. The first two vehicles took about 10 mins each. They then called the guy in front me to come forward as well as myself. The guy in front me went in the inspection bay (over the pit area), I rolled up behind him. The inspector guy (not dressed in licencing officer uniform) took his info checked his lights etc. Then came to me, politely asked for certified copy and receipt with inspection appointment. He asked a few basic questions like if I changed the engine or any modifications, then said to wait there along with the guy in front me until the the other licencing officer reached. We waited for about 45 mins in the inspection bay doing nothing. Then he spoke to the guy in front me and he drove off, I rolled over the pit and he asked:

"Did your brakes work this morning on the way down here?" I laughed a bit and said yes.
"Press your horn please" done
"Let me see your wipers" done

Then he said he giving me a bligh since he had me sitting there so long, so just go park up and come back for my inspection certificate.

So I guess it really depends on who you get on the morning, or in my case who I did not get.

if it's one thing you can count on over there, it's inconsistency :lol:
on another note, for those of you with proper steel bull bars (ARB, IronMan, et al) have you been harassed/ questioned about it in LO?

Can an inspection be done the same day as payment? Also does the certified copy need to be recent?

it's not legal without written approval from LO.
They usually don't but once in a while when things heating up they can ticket you

What about Projector with HID? Do they give trouble for this?

I know for fogs, you just have to tell them it disconnected. A LO once told me if its ON its illegal Light but its OFF , then its a lamp, which is not illegal.

Can anyone tell me if the MGW and TARE sign that is usually painted on all "T" vehicles can be a decal instead of paint?

It should be painted and depends on how the officer feeling at the time if it's sticker.

I inspect last year, where I had a sticker. They made me go and paint it on, by the guy at the entrance to LO in POS for $150. Did it same time, went back and showed them and I was passed.
