The NZTA has suspended yet another vehicle inspector after uncovering a number of issues.

Nearly 3,000 cars to be re-checked.

The New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) has immediately suspended Hamilton-based vehicle inspector Sayad Hussein and his inspecting organisation Frankton WoF and Tyre Station.

This month, Hussein was observed to be allowing unauthorised people to inspect cars which were then given a Warrant of Fitness (WoF) and incorrectly inspecting vehicle lighting, braking and exhaust systems.

The NZTA is unaware of specific concerns relating to individual vehicles, however, due to the poor quality of Hussein inspections, there is a possibility that some vehicles may have been incorrectly passed.

As a result, the NZTA is contacting all 2,836 affected vehicle owners individually to advise them on recheck options.
