For Questions Regarding WOFs/CERTs/NUMBER PLATEs

Recommended Posts

Unexpired WOF is still valid, though vehicle safety and legality to operate on the day still falls on the operator, regardless of WOF status.

So if a cop pulls me over and runs WOF check, it should be still cool then?

What about insurance cover?

Cheers

The sticker is still valid, but the car is not road legal due to being not up to WOF standard, no different to going for a fresh wof then throwing a set of slicks on

If you fail a wof, it is entered into wof online and your car no longer has a current wof, even if it hasn’t expired in the sticker.

So what's the deal with WOF inspection up to 2 weeks prior to expiry is allowed without bringing forward the next expiry date in case of pass?

I don't see the point of it???

Lets you book it in for a time that is suitable for the workshop/you.

I always get my WoF 2 weeks before expiry

Any suggestions on who to talk to/how to go about getting a collapsible steering setup in my project? Not quite there yet, but probably going to go with option C from 7.13.1 in the NZCCM:

"collapsibility into the lower steering column or steering intermediate shaft, by a sliding section"

As it is a scratch built I have to have some sort of collapsibility built in.

More like a factory car coming with super loud exhaust that is switchable by the driver at the push of a button. Can't fit it aftermarket, why should it be allowed when factory fitted? 

Just because something is factory fitted, doesn't mean it should be exempt from the rules that everything else has to live by. 

No vehicle can have a driver switchable exhaust. But a car can be fitted with an automated switching exhaust. But the "open" position has to be below the legal limit. So a "legal" setting and "quieter" setting if you will.

Where is the rack/box? In front of or behind the front crossmember?

Where is the testing to show that under the noise test, all of those cars exceed 90dB?

Has someone tested them to show that as you imply, they are all louder than 90dB under test conditions?

If they all exceed, then sweet loop hole, if they don't, then it's irrelephant really.

Image result for patrol steering box

Pic off internet showing the position of the box. No crossmember in the traditional sense as such, as it is a ladder frame chassis. But that round pipe on the far right of the pic is a crossmember in the sense it is a transverse member. 
Shane Speight has said it will need some form of collapsibility as he saw it with the body off but steering box still attached. I would be happy to hear he was wrong as it is less work for me, but I tend to think he might be right?

Do they actually make the car louder immediately on pressing the button, or does the button only permit the computer to divert exhaust through the louder path when parameters are met/as required? Also it is typical that with OE systems of this type, the loudest setting is still not greater than the law allows and the default setting is quiet. I think it is highly unlikely that the factory has a button that diverts the exhaust to open headers at the touch of a button. However I could be wrong as I don't know every vehicle.

An OE fitment will have had to meet a vehicle standard like FMVSS or an alternative Jap or Euro standard before it could be entered into the vehicle fleet and some FMVSS and Jap and Euro standards are less restrictive than LVVTA standards. But they can be less restrictive because they have much more expensive testing regimes like sound testing booth or drive-by sound testing laboratories etc.

So, if you want to comply to a less restrictive FMVSS standard then submit your vehicle for an FMVSS assessment and pay the $100's of thousands of dollars too.    LoL

The box looks to be in front of the front suspension beam which rules out 7.13.1 (a) 
I am surprised that a Safari doesn't have a collapsible column which would allow option (b)
So from the info you have given, then option (c) and (e) are your best options
