The NZ Transport Agency has immediately suspended vehicle inspector Binh Van Tra and his Mairangi Bay-based inspecting organisation Tra Automotive Limited (trading as Mairangi Bay Workshop).
The Transport Agency is concerned that non-compliant vehicles may have been given warrants of fitness (WoFs) and that important vehicle safety systems may not have been checked properly. For this reason, we strongly encourage people who have a current WoF issued by Mr Tra to get their vehicles rechecked.
The NZ Transport Agency will contact around 580 affected vehicle owners individually as soon as possible to advise them on recheck options.
The NZ Transport Agency has records of all WoF inspections. Should we have any concerns about the inspection and certification of your vehicle’s WoF we will contact you directly by both phone and letter, using the personal information recorded on the vehicle owner’s file.
If you have moved address or changed contact number in the past year and have not updated this, please phone the Transport Agency on 0800 108 809.
