Roadworthy Certificates

A roadworthy certificate is a safety inspection of your vehicle. It can only be issued by a licensed vehicle tester such as McDonald Street Service Centre. If your car passes the inspection, a certificate is issued and is valid for 30 days.

 

When is it required?

 

  • If you are selling a vehicle
  • A used vehicle is being re-registered
  • A vehicle defect needs to be cleared

 

The inspection process ensures that the main safety components of the car are working properly and that the vehicle is safe to be used on the roads.

 

The items required to be inspected for a roadworthy are:

 

  • wheels & tyres
  • brakes, steering & suspension
  • vehicle structure
  • seatbelts & windows
  • wipers & windscreen
  • reflectors & lights
  • chassis, driveline & engine
  • exhaust & emission control

 

However, it is important to note that the inspection does not cover the mechanical reliability or condition of the vehicle. If you would like an inspection of the mechanical reliability and condition of the vehicle please be sure to mention this upon booking.
