What is a roadworthy certificate and when do I need one?

According to queensland government regulations – a safety certificate (otherwise known as a roadworthy certificate or roadworthy’s) is needed when a registered light vehicle is offered for sale in Queensland, or when re-registering an unregistered vehicle. It confirms that a vehicle has passed a minimum safety standard inspection.   We offer roadworthy’s in the greater Brisbane area and the Gold Coast.

Vehicles requiring a safety certificate are:

  • cars
  • motorcycles
  • trailers (including caravans) with an aggregate trailer mass (ATM) over 750kg-3,500kg
  • any other vehicles up to 4,500kg gross vehicle mass (GVM).

What does a roadworthy certificate cover?

  • tyres
  • brakes
  • steering
  • suspension
  • body rust or damage
  • windscreen
  • lights.

What vehicle roadworthy’s are not:

A roadworthy certificate is not a substitute for a full comprehensive vehicle inspection. A full comprehensive vehicle inspection will cover dozens of important points on your vehicle that are not covered by a safety certificate / roadworthy certificate.  To avoid buying a lemon you really need a full comprehensive vehicle inspection to ensure your prospective vehicle is not hiding any nasty surprises that could hurt you financially down the track.

 

When do I need a roadworthy (safety certificate)?

You must display a roadworthy certificate label on a registered light vehicle from the moment you offer it for sale, including when you:

  • List the vehicle for sale online
  • Display that it is for sale in public
  • Drive the car with a sign in the window offering it for sale

You must display your roadworthy (safety certificate) in an obvious area, such as:

  • motorcycle—on the front forks or guard
  • car—on the windscreen or window

When displayed, all information written on the certificate must be able to be seen clearly from outside the vehicle.

You can be fined over $560 if you don’t clearly display a road worthy certificate on a vehicle—from the moment you offer it for sale.
