RWC Inspections

RWC Inspections

In Victoria a Certificate of Roadworthiness is generally required when a vehicle is sold or being re-registered. This helps reduce poorly maintained vehicles on the road.

Outback Accessories are authorised by Vicroads to perform Roadworthy Tests and issue Roadworth Certificates.


What is inspected?
The inspection is a check of the vehicle to ensure that key components have not worn or deteriorated and that the vehicle is safe for normal road use.

A roadworthy inspection mainly covers the major safety related items, including:

  • wheels and tyres
  • steering, suspension and braking systems
  • seats and seat belts
  • lamps and reflectors
  • windscreen, and windows including front windscreen wipers and washers
  • the structure of the vehicle itself
  • other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.

The roadworthiness test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle. If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then you should please advise us before booking for a RWC check.

How long does a certificate last?

A Certificate of Roadworthiness is current for 30 days from the date of issue.
