It is a requirement for all vehicles in Victoria to have a Roadworthy certificate when you change ownership or are instructed to do so by the Police.
Roadworthy certificates can only be issued by an accredited work shop by accredited staff who have undergone extensive training on requirements set out by Vic Roads. All our staff have undergone all the training required to issue Roadworthy certificates in the category of light vehicle.
A Roadworthy is a check of the vehicle to ensure that all safety related components have not worn or deteriorated to the extent that the vehicle is unsafe for normal road use. Parts inspected include, lamps & reflectors, the structure of the vehicle, braking system, wheels tires & suspension, steering, seats & seat belts, windscreen, windows & wipers, body, chassis or engine safety items.
Once the first inspection has been completed you have seven days to rectify any problems found. You then have to bring the vehicle back to be inspected. The Roadworthy certificate will then be issued. Once the certificate has been issued you then have thirty days from that date to transfer vehicle.
If vehicle is not transferred in that time a new certificate will have to be obtained.
