I have moved over to WA for a few months work and my NSW rego is due on my XH ute. The local mechanics will do a vehicle check that I can use to renew my NSW rego and gave me a list of the things that will be checked. I've made a few basic mods to the ute and I have no idea how particular people are in WA with the check. Given some of the pieces of crap I see on the street I would think not very, but I know the checks are not regular like the yearly one in NSW. I was hoping someone would be able to let me know which bits might be fail points. From what I can see:
- I have no mudguards.
- The taillights have a single tint coat
- The gear knob has no markings (like anyone uses them)
- I have Roh RT 17s with 225/50 (front) and 245/45 (rear) tyres
- The front tyres have a few nicks in the outer edge from the top of the guard and bad NSW roads
- It is lowered with King low front springs and reset standard rear leaves (clearance is about 170mm)
- It was originally the tradesman option
- There is a crack in the lower left corner in the windscreen (behind the rego label)

If anyone can shed some light it would be great as I don't really want to be in and out for days and spending heaps trying to get this done. Thanks.

You will have to replace the windsreen ,maybe the tyres as long as it doesn't look to illegal then it should be alright I know the tint on the taillights is ok as Ive taken my el to nz and back a few times and it was fine as long as its in a tidy condition and mechanily sound

pretty sure if you've owned the car more than a year you dont have to get it inspected to put it over to WA rego
