This guide has been developed by the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council (NMVTRC) and Austroads to support the consistent application of new, more stringent assessment criteria for the classification of written-off vehicles (WOVs). The new criteria apply to passenger and light commercial vehicles only. Readers should refer to the local related laws about the management of heavy vehicles, motorcycles, trailers and caravans.
