Testing ... Testing...

The Certificate Of Fitness (COF) examination on trucks is thorough, as it should be.

It is far more detailed than similar checks on light vehicles.

Examiners peer into every nook and cranny, run brake tests on high tech machine's, check the chassis for cracks, and generally crawl all over it.

Heavy trucks are often driven around the clock, by drivers on shifts, and can do the average annual NZ car mileage (14-16000k's) in a couple of weeks.
I don't do anything like that pottering around the Queen's Highways, I've done 30,000 in 6 months.

All was good, and away I went with a clean bill of health and a new sticker.
