Why does my registration cost more for my diesel Toyota Hilux ute than my diesel Ford Transit van?

Like a lot of the WoF rules it can come down to interpretation from the inspector carrying out the inspection as to whether a vehicle passes or fails.

The rules around rejection of a rear view mirror are:


- is not mounted securely, or
- cannot be adjusted, or
- cannot maintain its adjusted position, or
- is corroded or dirty, or
- is damaged so that it increases the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.


- does not provide a clear view to the rear of the vehicle, or
- is not sufficiently isolated from vibrations.
- If the crack was sufficient to obscure the view to the rear or could potentially cause injury to occupants, then it would be grounds for rejection.
