Drivers whose cars are now less than 13 years old will only need annual warrants of fitness checks rather than six-monthly, under changes to the WoF system aimed at saving motorists $159 million a year.

Associate Transport Minister Simon Bridges announced the changes today after reviewing the WOF system earlier in the year.

The changes include:

* new cars will have an initial inspection but no further WoF check will be required until the vehicle is three years old. After that, they will require annual inspections.

* vehicles which are more than three years old and first registered after 1 January 2000 will require annual inspections.

* older vehicles which were first registered before 1 January 2000 will still require 6-monthly checks.
