NSW: Updates to Specialised Classes of Motor Vehicle Repair Work

There have been changes to the scope of work and qualifications required in some repair classes, including the removal of wheel balancing from the steering, suspension, and wheel alignment repair class.

There are now two start dates for the specialised motor vehicle repair classes. While most started on 1 September 2020, repair classes for glazing work and electrical accessory fitting work will now start on 1 November 2021. This means tradespersons who do not currently hold a relevant tradesperson’s certificate but want to do glazing work or electrical accessory fitting work, will need to complete the prescribed qualification and obtain a tradesperson’s certificate by 1 November 2021. 

From 1 September 2020, applications can be made for a tradesperson’s certificate for specialised repair classes in: Exhaust repair work, radiator repair work, and steering, suspension, and wheel alignment work. These repair classes require a tradesperson to have the prescribed Certificate II qualification for the repair class. Click HERE for more information about the changes.
