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:
- 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?
- body rust or damage
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.
