The industry standard inspection covers the basic safety components of a vehicle, including (but not limited to) tyres, brakes, suspension, engine & drivelines, oil leaks, windscreen, body rust or damage, power windows and lights.
Always check the spare tyre as this does not form part of a Queensland Transport Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate inspection.
Sometimes vehicles fail their safety inspection. If your vehicle requires some TLC, our Queensland Transport approved examiner will provide you with a comprehensive report outlining the issues that need to be addressed. Queensland Transport allows fourteen days for repairs to be undertaken. Once your vehicle has been repaired, give us a call and book your re-inspection.
The windscreen or windows are the best places to display a safety certificate. As Queensland Transport offers online (paperless) Roadworthy and Safety Certificates, it is not a legal requirement to display the certificate.
You must ensure that the Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate number is provided to the buyer. It is also recommended that a copy of the Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate is kept by the buyer.
Yes, we do and we come to you! Heavy vehicle mechanics/examiners are required to hold more extensive qualifications, so please let us know when you make your booking.
We also offer an annual reminder service to inform you when your Certificate of Inspection (also known as a COI) is due.
Yes no problem. It is important to remember that prior to sale or transfer, you will be required to obtain a gas certificate. We can also do the gas certificate for you at the same time as your Roadworthy / Safety Certificate.
No. If the vehicle is unregistered you are not required by law to have a Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate prior to sale or transfer, according to the Queensland pre-registration process.
This applies to all vehicle types.
