FAQ - Modification Plates

Checklists for Light and Heavy Modification Codes

A Modification Plate may be required for your car or truck when you are altering the vehicle from its original state.

One of the biggest hurdles is to work out what is actually legal and what can be certified. 

So, we have put together these checklists that are actually used by our mod plate examiners.

This way then you can see what is checked and what you will need to have ready before we come on out to you.

Some codes are quite complex whereas other can be straight forward. 

Our friendly team are more than happy to assist with your questions and can email through more information upon request.
