    Can anyone else offer insight on this ?

    Vehicles registered with antique plates and vehicles more than 25 years old with regular passenger plates must pass safety, but not emissions, tests. Motorcycles and vehicles older than 1975 are exempt from testing. Vehicles 25 years and older are exempt from testing.

    Yes in an ideal world I'd have thought. The certifier is confident it can happen on the same day. He gives it a WOF then wheels it straight into VTNZ on the same day and then they give it a WOF.
    Theres obviously a relationship...as you would expect.

    the fun part is you pay your cash over for a check, it fails, you have 28 days for a recheck, ok for a warrant but for a redesign it's a little more fun and a lot more coin to throw away.

    That is a valid point. A redesign would be a serious pain in the ass...
