Roadworthy Inspection

A Certificate of Roadworthiness (also known as a ‘roadworthy’ or ‘RWC’) shows that your vehicle’s safe enough to be used on public roads. A roadworthy is required whenever a vehicle’s sold, if it’s being re-registered, and to clear some defect notices. A Certificate of Roadworthiness isn’t a guarantee that a vehicle’s mechanically reliable, it just shows that it’s safe enough to be driven. Keep in mind that some vehicles are exempt from requiring a Certificate of Roadworthiness.

What’s checked in roadworthy inspection? The roadworthy inspection is a check of the vehicle to make sure that key components are in a good enough condition for safe road use. It includes:
* wheels and tyres
* steering, suspensions and braking systems
* seats and seatbelts
* lights and reflectors
* vehicle structure
* windscreen, and windows including front wipers and washers
* other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.
The roadworthy inspection test isn’t a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of a vehicle.

From Start to Finish

Who issues certificates?
A Certificate of Roadworthiness can only be issued when a licensed vehicle tester, operating from a nominated garage or service station, believes the vehicle is roadworthy. A certificate can only be issued when a vehicle passes the inspection.

How long does a certificate remain current?
A roadworthy is considered ‘current’ if it was issued less than 30 days before you present it at VicRoads (e.g. when you visit us to transfer or re-register a vehicle). Note: This is not a guarantee that a vehicle with a roadworthy certificate will necessarily continue to remain in a roadworthy condition for 30 days from the date the certificate was issued.

what is the cost of certificate?
The cost of getting a roadworthy can depend on the age, type and condition of a vehicle.
If the vehicle fails the test

If an item fails to meet the requirements, the vehicle tester will issue a rejection report. You’ll be given 7 days to repair or replace the rejected item/s and have them re-inspected. If more than 7 days goes by, another full roadworthy inspection will be required. Remember,before you get the roadworthy certificate. A roadworthy inspection will help you to avoid all the hassel mensioned above & give you the clear view of the vechicle's condition.
