If you have a non-standard vehicle, it will need to be inspected by a Vehicle Safety Compliance Certification Scheme (VSCCS) licensed certifier to ensure it complies with NSW vehicle safety standards. 

Non-standard vehicles include: 

  • significantly modified vehicles
  • individually constructed vehicles
  • some imported vehicles.

Heavy vehicle modifications are inspected and assessed for compliance by VSCCS J&P certifiers. A heavy vehicle J code modification includes simple body mountings and a P code modification includes tow coupling, fifth wheel and king pin installations.
