A Certificate of Roadworthiness is required in the following situations:
- When a vehicle is sold,
- if a used vehicle is to be re-registered
- or, in some cases to clear a Vehicle Defect Notice.
Who issues certificates
A Certificate of Roadworthiness can only be issued when a vehicle is passed by a licensed vehicle tester, operating from a nominated garage or service station. A certificate is only issued when a vehicle passes the inspection.
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.
What does the Certificate of Roadworthiness inspection cover?
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 all the following:
- 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.
