Modification Plates

Have you modified your vehicle?
If the answer is yes, you will need to obtain what is known as a Modification Plate.

Modification Plates

This ensures that the modification to your vehicle has been done in a safe and roadworthy manner, protecting you and your family against any possible harm.

Examples;
Has the seating capacity in your vehicle been altered ? a larger engine or turbo charger added ? a different gearbox or differential not offered from the manufacturer ? all these modifications will require what’s known as a modification plate to assure that the change has been done safely and correctly to comply with roadworthy standards. The qualified examiner will then be able to issue the modification plate. A modification plate can only be obtained by an authorised examiner. For a mechanic to apply for a Modification Plate license, he/she must be qualified as a mechanic for no less than 10 years with relevant industry experience in manufacture, maintenance or modifications.
