How do I obtain a roadworthy Certificate?

To get a roadworthy certificate for your vehicle, simply make a booking, drop your car off and we do the rest.
After checking your vehicle for roadworthiness, we let you know if any repairs are required and can give an estimation of cost to rectify any faults, carry out repairs and return your vehicle complete with roadworthy certificate.


Items like globes and wipers can usually but rectified on the spot.  You can arrange for the repairs to be done and return the vehicle within 14 days for the final inspection, Please note a fee may be applicable for second inspection if the vehicle failed with over 10 defects. 

What isn’t checked

The roadworthiness test isn’t a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of a vehicle. A Certificate of Roadworthiness does not mean that:

the vehicle is in top condition without any wear or deterioration

non-safety related accessories (such as the air conditioner, rear window demister and rear-window wipers) are working

the items checked during the roadworthy inspection will continue to function after the inspection, e.g. a brake light can stop functioning at any time after the inspection

the vehicle complies with all of the Australian Design Rules (ADRs)
