At Auto Super Shoppe we want to get you back on the road as soon as possible. To help give your car the best possible chance of passing your WOF – we’ll show you a few tips and tricks to help you get your car through its WOF and back on the road.


What to check before you visit the local Auto Super Shoppe for a Warrant of Fitness:



Check that all your lights work. Check the indicators, park lights, brake lights, and headlights – both dipped and high beams. Get a friend to help you or park your vehicle next to a window so you can see the reflection of the lights. Got a blown bulb? Bring your car in. We can replace most light bulbs on the spot.



Check your windscreen wipers are in good order. Does your windscreen washer deliver water onto the windscreen with each sweep without patches or smudging? If they need to be replaced, we can sort that for you during your assessment.


Tyre pressure and tread

Pumped up tyres make it easier to grip the road and because they make your car more efficient, so it saves you on fuel. Always check the recommended pressure readings for your car before you pump your tyres. You can also make sure your tyre is not bald by checking the tyre tread depth indicators. We can help here too. Ask our staff about our WoF + Basic Service Combo.



Not enough oil can cause increased wear to your vehicle’s engine or cause it to seize up. Use the dipstick to assess how much oil you have. If the oil doesn’t reach the indicator mark on the dipstick, you need more oil. We can fill up your oil at the branch while you’re here – just let us know when you arrive.


Seats and seat belts

Before you arrive, check all the seat belts are accessible for assessment, and have no tears or rips. And removing child safety seats and making sure any back seats are up will save you time.


Car boot

Make sure your car boot is empty. This enables us to easily check the spare wheel, so you spend less time at the branch.



It’s best to leave pets at home if you can. Alternatively, take them for a walk while we carry out your assessment.
