Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) Inspections

Vehicle Roadworthies are essential... If you’re thinking of buying a second-hand car or want to sell your car, it’s important to make sure the car is roadworthy. This is a check of the car to make sure it is safe to be on the road. Over time, vehicles may deteriorate or be altered which could be dangerous to the driver of the vehicle, its passengers, and road users.

Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) Inspection

As of the 1st of July 2020, VicRoads have increased their standard of inspections. Under these new regulations we are fully compliant in ensuring all checks are carried out as per the new guidelines.

We are a VicRoads licenced vehicle tester. All our staff are fully trained and experienced so you can expect a thorough inspection of:

  • Windscreen and windows (including washers and wipers)

  • The structure of the vehicle body & chassis

  • Seats and seatbelts

  • Engine and Driveline

  • Exhaust and emissions

  • Braking system, steering, and suspensions

  • Wheels and tyres

  • Lights, signals, and reflectors

  • Photograph all aspects of the vehicle during pre-assessment (as per guidelines)

  • Photograph all aspects of the vehicle once issues found have been rectified (as per guidelines)

All this and more are checked according to the VicRoads Certificate of Roadworthiness.

Note: A Roadworthy Certificate Inspection is not a comprehensive inspection about the mechanical reliability or the general condition of the car. It is an inspection per VicRoads roadworthiness requirements... we can do a thorough inspection for you to check your vehicle for reliability. Just let us know you need this extra level of detail.  

Easy, transparent, and convenient for you

All inspections are done at our workshop and you are welcome to grab a coffee in our comfortable customer lounge or go across to the shops nearby. We will give you an estimate of how long it will take and tell you what we will do.

After the Roadworthy Certificate Inspection

After we’ve inspected your vehicle, we’ll go through the results and let you know what it all means in a way you can easily understand.

You will get a Roadworthy Certificate when your car passes the inspection.

If anything needs fixing, we will explain what and why and refer to the VicRoads regulations that apply.

Then you decide what you would like us to do. We will never go ahead and fix anything without discussing it with you and getting your approval.
