How much of an oil leak would cause a knock back for a Road Worthy Certificate ?

Thank you for any help

Maurice.

Have been told if it drips while he's looking at it, it fails.
I usually stop a bit sort of the inspector's place to wipe the sump.

Maurice, From My experience, It depends on a couple of factors.

A ) The mood of the Bloke doing the inspection.
B ) The general condition & presentation of the rest of the Truck.

I Have seen on more than one occasion, where Blokes have rigged up a jam Tin to catch the Drip. & avoid dripping onto either the exhaust or Ground .
Which means they can't ping you as per the Link Vic has put up..!!

But Again, this depends on the Mood of the Bloke doing It..!!
