Modification Plates

Have you modified your vehicle to best suit your needs or desires? If so, you will need to obtain what is known as a Modification Plate.

This ensures that the modification to your vehicle has been done in a safe and roadworthy manner, protecting you and your family against any possible harm.

Owners sometimes modify their vehicles to give them a distinctive appearance, to improve their performance, to add desired features. Some may need to change the engine (alternate or replacement engines), adjust the suspension, or to add a long-range fuel tank.

Others modify their vehicles so that they are better suited to a specialised purpose.


A customer might change the seating capacity in a vehicle from a two seater to a 3 seater, so a modification plate will be required to assure that the change has been done safely and accurately.

The vehicle will be inspected and approved to safety and roadworthy standards. The qualified examiner will then be able to issue the modification plate.

A modification plate can only be obtained by an authorised examiner. For a mechanic to apply for a Modification Plate license, he/she must be qualified as a mechanic for no less than 10 years and put through a strenuous examination process.
