Recent changes to Queensland Transport regulations regarding Roadworthy / Safety Certificates
31 December, 2016
Let us be the first to tell you…
Queensland Transport recently made changes to the way Roadworthy Certificates and Safety Certificates are being issued.
You are now able to request an online paperless version of your Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate and request the Certificate be lodged directly with Queensland Transport via the Approved Examiner issuing the Safety Certificate (should your provider be registered for the new online version).
Whilst Queensland Transport weeds out any possible problems with the online system, the customer is still able to request a paper copy of the Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate instead of opting for the online version. In due course though the entire system will be solely online and the paper version of Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate will be scrapped.
With this change there also comes another change implemented by Queensland Transport. Previously, sellers were required to make the Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate visible for all to see once the vehicle was advertised for sale and should the seller have not done this, significant fines applied.
It is now published on the Queensland Transport website that the online version of the Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate is no longer required to be presented in the vehicle but the seller should provide the Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate number and/or a copy of the certificate to any potenital buyer.

It is Queensland Transport intention to streamline and simplify the Roadworthy Certificate / Safety Certificate process for the consumer.
