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.
