Safety certificates / Roadworthy Certificates

In Queensland a roadworthy is needed when:

A registered light vehicle is offered for sale in Queensland, or transferring registration to a new owner, or when transferring to Queensland registration from another state or territory, or

when re-registering an unregistered vehicle.

Vehicles that require a roadworthy are:

Cars

Motorcycles

Trailers (including caravans) with an aggregate trailer mass (ATM) between 750kg and 3,500kg

any other vehicles up to 4,500kg gross vehicle mass (GVM).

The roadworthy inspection covers the BASIC vehicle safety standards for many components including:

Tyres

Brakes

Steering

Suspension

Body rust or damage

Windscreen

Lights.

The Vehicle Inspection Guidelines explain how a safety certificate inspection is performed and the reasons a vehicle may fail an inspection.

So guys and girls please note a safety certificate inspection IS NOT a comprehensive mechanical inspection on the quality, or life expectancy of a vehicle.

If you are buying a used vehicle, you are best off getting us to do a pre purchase inspection to cover off more of the possible and future issues that may occur.
