ROADWORTHY CERTIFICATE

ROADWORTHY CERTIFICATE THOMASTOWN & INSPECTION CENTER

In Victoria a Certificate of Roadworthiness is generally required when a vehicle is sold or if a used vehicle is to be re-registered. This helps minimise the number of poorly maintained vehicles on the road.

In some cases a Certificate of Roadworthiness is also required to clear a Vehicle Defect Notice or a Notice of Unroadworthiness.

WHO ISSUES CERTIFICATES?

A Certificate of Roadworthiness can only be issued by a licensed vehicle tester, operating from a nominated garage or service station in Thomastown.

WHEN CAN A CERTIFICATE BE ISSUED?

The vehicle must pass a roadworthy inspection, then a certificate is issued.

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 IN THOMASTOWN 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 arrange for a separate report offered by us.

Typically a roadworthy inspection will include:

  1. Condition of wheels and tyres
  2. Steering
  3. Suspension
  4. Brakes
  5. Lamps, signals and reflectors
  6. Windscreen and windows
  7. Wipers and washers
  8. Seats and seat belts
  9. Body, chassis and engine
