Kiwi drivers may have seen the end of the six-month warrant of fitness checks for their cars.
The Government is currently examining the twice yearly safety evaluation for New Zealand motors with a view to reforming the practice.
The frequency of the warrant of fitness checks is one of the highest in the developed world with every car that is more than five years requiring the tests.
AA Spokesman Mike Noon told reporters that any changes to the licensing system must be based on evidence.
"Particularly in terms of things like the certificate of fitness and the warrant of fitness foremost we're keeping road safety in mind, when we're looking at the review of these," he said.
"In Australia we don't have warrant of fitness checks. In New Zealand we have warrant of fitness checks every six months.
"So it is possibly timely to look at the frequency of these checks, and the processes that we're using."
The inspections are reported to cost Kiwis around $250 million a year.
