Official VicRoads information:

WHEN DO I NEED A CERTIFICATE OF ROADWORTHINESS?

A Certificate of Roadworthiness is required when a vehicle is sold, if a used vehicle is to be re-registered or, in some cases to clear a Vehicle Defect. It is only issued by a licensed vehicle tester.

Brand new vehicles and some vehicles that were not designed primarily for carrying passengers or goods on a highway and considered to be a specially constructed vehicle are exempt from requiring a Certificate of Roadworthiness.

GETTING A CERTIFICATE OF ROADWORTHINESS

How Long Does A Certificate Remain Current?

A current certificate of roadworthiness, required for the purpose of registering or transferring a vehicle, is one that has been issued not more than 30 days prior to any application for the registration or transfer.

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.

The Cost Of The Certificate

The cost of obtaining a certificate is not fixed and can depend on the age, type and the condition of the vehicle. You can get a quote from us at any time.

If The Vehicle Fails The Test

If an item fails to meet the requirements, the tester will issue a rejection report. You will be given 7 days to repair or replace the rejected items and have those rejected item inspected again. If more than 7 days elapse a full inspection is then required.

WHAT DOES THE CERTIFICATE OF ROADWORTHINESS INSPECTION COVER?

What Is Inspected?

The inspection is a check of the vehicle to ensure that the key components are in a fit condition for safe road use. It includes:

  • wheels and tyres
  • steering, suspensions and braking systems
  • seats and seatbelts
  • lights and reflectors
  • windscreen, and windows including front wipers and washers
  • vehicle structure
  • other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.

What Is Not Inspected?

The roadworthiness test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle.

The certificate 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, electric windows and rear-window wipers are working
  • • that 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 roadworthiness test is not a complete assessment of a vehicle’s compliance with the Standards for Registration, which in most cases are the Australian Design Rules (ADRs). The ADRs are set a set of minimum standards for the construction of motor vehicles and trailers. Compliance with these standards cannot be assessed by inspection alone.
