Are Safety Certificates and Roadworthy Certificates the same?
Yes. In 1999, the safety certificate replaced the roadworthy certificate in compliance with the Queensland Transport authority. The following vehicles require a safety certificate:
- Any other vehicles up to 4.50 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM)
How long is a Safety Certificate valid for?
- If you’re selling your own car, a Safety Certificate is valid for two months or 2000kms. Whichever occurs first.
- If you’re a dealer, a Safety Certificate is valid for three months or 1000kms. Whichever occurs first.
The same safety certificate can be used to register a vehicle and then transfer the registration, as long as it is within the time limits dictated above.
When do I need a Safety Certificate?
- Vehicle registration transfers.
- Selling a Car – A Safety Certificate must be displayed in the vehicle window before it is advertised for sale. Failure to do so will result in significant fines.
What happens if my car fails the first inspection?
How long does it take to do a Safety Certificate?
Please allow forty to fifty minutes for a Safety Certificate inspection. This includes a thorough vehicle check and a written report.
My vehicle is unregistered, is that okay?
Yes, that’s fine. The vehicle must be taken for a road test; our qualified mechanics hold the proper insurances and carry trade plates, enabling them to road-test a vehicle safely and legally.
