Vehicle Inspection WA Information

Yellow Stickers and Vehicle Inspection WA Information : In WA before a vehicle can be registered it must pass a safety test at an approved inspection station if the vehicle:

  • Has been modified, for example new engine or body.
  • Is being registered in WA for the first time.
  • Has been written off and is being  licensed for repair.
  • Has received a compliance notice – otherwise known as a yellow sticker.

In WA a compliance notice or yellow sticker can be issued by a police officer or a number of authorised wardens if they are deemed to be un-roadworthy. Some vehicles in Western Australia require annual Vehicle examinations prior to registration renewal. These include buses, taxis and driving school vehicles.
