A motor vehicle repairer was reprimanded and fined $750 by the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) on 2 February 2015 for failing to comply with a condition placed on his certificate.

Mark Paul Ravlich of Swan View failed to provide a National Police Certificate in accordance with the condition on his repairer’s certificate issued under the Motor Vehicle Repairers Act. The SAT ordered him to provide an updated police clearance by 1 March 2015.

Commissioner for Consumer Protection Anne Driscoll said certificate holders must ensure they comply with any conditions imposed on their certificate.

“The licensing laws are designed to ensure that only fit, proper and appropriately skilled people are certified to work in the motor vehicle repair industry.  Supplying a National Police Certificate is part of the process used to assess suitability for certification,” Ms Driscoll said.

“Under certain circumstances, repairer certificates may be subject to special conditions which must be met or disciplinary action is taken by Consumer Protection.”

Consumers and employers can check if a repairer is certified, and whether the certification is subject to any special conditions, on Consumer Protection’s online licence search at www.commerce.wa.gov.au/CP/licencesearch.

Further information the licensing requirements for motor vehicle repairers can be obtained on the Consumer Protection website www.commerce.wa.gov.au/motorvehicles. Enquiries can be made by emailing consumer@commerce.wa.gov.au or by calling 1300 30 40 54.
