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.
