YELLOW STICKERS AND VEHICLE INSPECTION WA

Before a car can be registered in Western Australia, it must pass a safety test at an Approved Inspection Station, if the vehicle:
$
is being registered in WA for the first time
$
has been modified (e.g. new engine or body)
$
has been written off and is being licensed for repair
$
has received a compliance notice (also known as a yellow sticker)
A Compliance Notice (“yellow sticker”) in WA can be issued by a police officer or authorised wardens when they identify a car to be un-roadworthy. Also, buses, taxis and driving school vehicles require annual Vehicle examinations to renew registration.

After your car is inspected, any defects found will need to be repaired and the car reassessed. When your car passes the inspection, you will need to pay a transfer fee, stamp duty, registration fee and registration plate fee. If the vehicle is less than 25 years old it must be also fitted with a government-approved immobiliser.
