Wendouree Car Service Centre (WCSC) is an approved noise tester accredited by the E.P.A (environment protection authority). We are the only accredited testers in the area.
EPA approved noise testers are an important link in providing a peaceful and acceptable environment for Victorians. Approved noise testers are people appointed by the protection authority with the responsibility for testing vehicles for noise for the EPA.
These vehicles have been reported by members of the Victorian Police or officers of EPA as being noisy or having a faulty exhaust.
EPA Noise Tests cost $81.50
The owners of these vehicles are required by legal notice to present their vehicle to an approved tester and obtain a certificate before a specified date. Approved testers conduct a stationary exhaust noise test on the vehicle to determine if the vehicle complies with the Environment Protection (vehicle emissions) Regulations2003.
When the vehicle complies with the regulations, the noise tester can issue a certificate of compliance to the person presenting the vehicle.
Owners who fail to lodge that certificate with EPA can be fined and have their vehicles registration suspended.
We have the latest in testing equipment that is calibrated as required by the EPA.
