Once NSW written-off light vehicles have been repaired, certified by a licensed repairer and inspected under the Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Scheme (AUVIS), they must then undergo a VIIU inspection before they can be re-registered.

Note: Interstate written-off light vehicles must have been re-registered in another state or territory following the write-off event, before they can be registered in NSW.

What you need

In addition, for NSW written-off light vehicles:

  • an Authorisation to Repair from TfNSW
  • a Certificate of Compliance issued by a licensed repairer
  • original detailed receipts for all repairs carried out on the vehicle.

How to book

More information

  • The Vehicle Identity & Inspections Unit (VIIU) carries out inspections of vehicles to confirm their identity.
  • If you've been given authorisation by Transport for NSW to repair a written-off vehicle, the VIIU will carry out the final inspection of the vehicle, prior to your applying for registration.
