The Transport Agency said Brad Harrison from Kerikeri Autohaus had an unauthorised inspector issuing WOFs on pre-signed check sheets.

It said there was a strong possibility some vehicles may have been incorrectly passed.

People who have a current Warrant of Fitness from from the business should get their vehicles re-checked, the agency said.

Another man, Yaea Wongchiu and his company Gee J Auto Services and Tyres was also suspended today, after police pulled over a modified car in Porirua, north of Wellington.

They found that just two hours earlier it was issued a WoF in Auckland, some eight hours drive away.
