old or more, shall produce it for inspection by an examiner
biennially, at such premises designated for that purpose as the
Licensing Authority may direct.

motorcycle, public service motor vehicle, rental car, goods vehicle,

Someone could correct me if I'm wrong, but I've never seen any notices that say you have to make an appointment two months in advance.

The date on my current inspection sticker runs up to March 16th, so I asked the "lady" issuing appointment dates if I could be charged if I drive the vehicle after March 16th, she say yes, so I ask her what I was supposed to do until April 12th, she say "doh drive d vehicle!", then she gone off on she high horse about "is not my problem if you wait until the ting expire to come in!". I thought about pointing out that it hadn't already expired, and that I anticipated an appointment within two weeks (which seemed a reasonable amount of time), but then she looked at me with the evil public servant eyes, (by the way I'm not bashing all public servants; because I was one for a time, only the ones who get on like they doing you a favour).

First they ask u for ur chassis no., my nav's was on the frame below the driver door.
Then I drove over the pit, the officer made me check all lights, indicators, wipers, horn. Then, being my vehicle was manual, he made me pull up the handbrake and try to pull off amd stall the engine, which I did. Then I had to start up, pull off in 1st gear then mash the brakes bard to come to a complete stop. After that, he said come back after 1PM to pick up my sticker.
Went to west mall, ate an overpriced lunch at burger king, stopped at the ATM to pick up some more cash for diesel cuz I forgot and spent most of my diesel money on a double whopper.... Hen went back at 2:30PM amd got my sticker.
Went to the parking lot all happy and whatnot, decided to put on the sticker.... Cleaned the windshield with my handy chamois and carefully applied the vinyl sticker. Went outside to the front of the truck to admire my brand new sticker - which I had put on crooked.

The footbrake test, I saw like ppl were doing it for the heck of it, cause once i rolled off the pit, the officer didn't seem to be interested...
So i asked the lady inside, (who btw, looks like one of the vendors they take from selling out front), she said "ent yuh hear the man say no sticker"...hmm, so I didn't bother anymore.
