Roadworthy Certificate for Vic Roads
In Victoria a Certificate of Roadworthiness is 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.

When can a Roadworthy certificate be issued?
The vehicle must pass a roadworthy inspection, then a certificate is issued.
What is inspected for Roadworthy certificate?
The inspection is a check of the vehicle to ensure that key components have not worn or deteriorated and that the vehicle is safe for normal road use.
A roadworthy inspection mainly covers the major safety related items, including:
- wheels and tyres
- steering, suspension and braking systems
- seats and seat belts
- lamps and reflectors
- windscreen, and windows including front windscreen wipers and washers
- the structure of the vehicle itself
- other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.
The roadworthiness test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle. If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then you should arrange for a separate independent report.
The certificate does not mean:
- that the vehicle is in top condition without any wear or deterioration
- non-safety related accessories such as the air conditioner, rear window demister, electric windows and rear-window wipers are working
- that the items checked during the roadworthy inspection will continue to function after the inspection eg. a brake light can stop functioning at any time after the inspection.
What if the vehicle fails the Roadworthy test?
If an item fails to meet the standard, the tester will issue a rejection report. You will be given seven days to repair the item/s rejected and return the vehicle to the tester 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.
How much does the Roadworthy test cost?
The cost of obtaining a Roadworthy Certificate is not fixed. It may depend on the age, type and condition of the vehicle being examined. Please ask for a estimate.
How long does a Roadworthy certificate last?
A Certificate of Roadworthiness is current, for the purposes of a transaction, for 28 days from the date of issue.
