To become a CoF inspector you will need to:

  • Complete the MITO Certificate in Vehicle Inspection in CoF-A or CoF-B. If you want to become a CoF-B inspector, you will also need to complete roller brake machine (RBM) training through a Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency-approved training provider. 
  • Apply to Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency for approval of your application

For details on RBM training or the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency approval process, please visit the relevant section on the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency website .

MITO CERTIFICATE IN VEHICLE INSPECTION

The MITO Certificate in Vehicle Inspection training programmes are just one part of becoming a CoF inspector. Please ensure that you refer to the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency website to ensure you meet the eligibility and experience criteria.

Currently, you can apply to become a vehicle inspector in the following categories:

  • CoF-A
  • CoF-B Goods Service Vehicles (GSV)
  • CoF-B Passenger Service Vehicles (PSV) – (note this has a pre-requisite of CoF-B (GSV))

Please note that there are different qualification and experience criteria for CoF-A and CoF-B.

If you have completed CoF-A and want to also become a CoF-B inspector, you will also need to meet the CoF-B criteria, complete additional theory related to CoF-B and undertake a practical assessment. Contact MITO for more detail on this process.
