• You receive a Defect Notice (often referred to as a yellow sticker or work order).
• You have modified your vehicle (for example: change body, engine, dimensions).
• Your vehicle is subject to an annual inspection.
• You want to license a repairable written-off vehicle.
• Your vehicle passed an inspection, but the inspection certificate has expired

AME Automotive conducts vehicle inspections Monday to Friday via two Authorised Inspection Examiners (AIE). This facilitates a speedy inspection process by reliable hands so that you can get your car back on the road as soon as possible.
