what is road worthy certificate

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. Yambla Auto Tune is licensed vehicle testers.

When can a certificate be issued?

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

If an item fails to meet the standard, We will issue a rejection report. You will be given seven days to repair the item/s rejected and return the vehicle

to us for a second inspection of the failed items. If more than seven days elapse a complete inspection must again be carried out on the vehicle.

The cost of obtaining a Certificate of Roadworthiness is not fixed. It may depend on the age, type and condition of the vehicle being examined. You can ask for a quote from us.

A Certificate of Roadworthiness is current, for the purposes of a transaction, for 30 days from the date of issue.

The roadworthiness test is not a complete assessment of a vehicle’s compliance with the Standards for Registration, which, in most cases, are the Australian Design Rules (ADRs). The ADRs are a set of minimum standards for the construction of motor vehicles and trailers. In most cases compliance with these standards cannot be assessed by inspection alone.
