Warrant of fitness prices may rise - MTA

From Morning Report, 6:12 am on 13 February 2019

The Motor Trade Association says the cost of a warrant of fitness could rise as mechanics spooked by a clampdown move to get out of doing inspections. The association's chief exeuctive Craig Pomare says widening warrant inspections to include hi-tech features on cars, and giving warrant auditors more powers to check on garages, could also discourage mechanics from taking on the work. But he says that would be a good thing for public safety.
