Roadworthy Certificate Gold Coast

Need a Roadworthy / Safety Certificate for your car?

If you’re selling or have sold your car, wish to transfer registration from another state or need to re-register your vehicle, you need a roadworthy certificate/safety certificate.  We are also licenced to carry out COI (Certificate of Inspection) for UBER and Taxi vehicles.

Some of the components of your car that are assessed during a Roadworthy Inspection include:

  • Seats and restraints
  • Lights and electrical components
  • Windscreen and windows
  • Steering and suspension
  • Wheels and tyres
  • Brake components
  • Engines and drivelines
  • Exhaust and emissions
  • Road Test

A roadworthy certificate or “RWC” is an inspection that only certified Roadworthy Inspectors can carry out.

Why is a roadworthy certificate important?

As a local provider of safety certificates, it’s our duty of care to make sure your roadworthy inspection is carried out correctly. Once the inspection is complete and all areas pass the test, we sign off the car to indicate it is safe to be on the road and meets QLD Transport’s guidelines.

It’s not uncommon for a car to fail its first inspection. You have 14 days to get any issues sorted without having to pay for another inspection – providing it is returned to our workshop for the follow-up inspection.

Also, the vehicle either needs to be registered or have the CTP component of your rego paid so that we can carry out a sufficient road test as it is part of the inspection.

Some other terminology some people use for a Roadworthy; Blue Slip, warrant, MOT, Roady. Please note that a Roadworthy Inspection is different to a Pre-purchase Inspection. Be careful when purchasing a car that doesn’t have a current Roadworthy Certificate

We can’t stress the importance of regular oil change / service intervals with cars of today. This Barina was almost 30,000klms overdue and inside the engine has an increasing amount of carbon/sludge build up. (It is also rattly too) This will drastically shorten the life of an engine.
Ashmore RWC & Automotive are open during the Commonwealth Games.
