If you are unable to keep your appointment, you must give DVA at least one clear day's notice. Failure to do so will result in the loss of your fee. This excludes weekends, holidays, the day on which notice of cancellation is received and the date of the test. The last date for cancellation appears on your appointment letter.

Appeal fees

If your vehicle doesn't pass its inspection and you're not satisfied with the decision, you can appeal and have a re-examination carried out by a senior inspector.

You must make your appeal within 14 days of the decision and you will have to pay a fee. This fee is the same as the application fee for the full test. It will be refunded, either in part or in full, if your appeal is successful.
