Roadworthy Certificates

WHO ISSUES CERTIFICATES?

A Certificate of Roadworthiness can only be issued by a licensed vehicle tester, operating from a nominated garage or service station.

WHEN CAN A CERTIFICATE BE ISSUED?

The vehicle must pass a roadworthy inspection, then a certificate is issued.

WHAT IS INSPECTED?

The inspection is a check of the vehicle to ensure that key components have not worn or deteriorated and that the vehicle is safe for normal road use.

A ROADWORTHY INSPECTION MAINLY COVERS THE MAJOR SAFETY RELATED ITEMS, INCLUDING:
  • wheels and tyres
  • steering, suspension and braking systems
  • seats and seat belts
  • lamps and reflectors
  • windscreen, and windows including front windscreen wipers and washers
  • the structure of the vehicle itself
  • other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.

The roadworthiness test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle. If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then you should arrange for a separate report offered by us.

Typically a roadworthy inspection will include:

  • Steering
  • Condition of wheels and tyres
  • Suspension
  • Brakes
  • Lamps, signals and reflectors
  • Windscreen and windows
  • Wipers and washers
  • Seats and seat belts
  • Body, chassis and engine
