RWC

Certificate of Roadworthiness

In Victoria obtaining certificate of roadworthiness is mandatory before a vehicle can be sold – the vehicles seller must provide a current roadworthy certificate to the buyer, unless the buyer is their spouse or a licensed motor vehicle trader.
How do I obtain a Roadworthy Certificate?

A roadworthy inspection covers the major safety related items, including: Seats and seat belts Exhaust and Emission controls Wheels and tyres Steering, suspension and braking systems Lamps and reflectors Windscreen, and windows including front windscreen wipers and washers The structure of the vehicle itself Safety related items on the body, chassis or engine How long is my RWC Valid? In melbourne and the rest of Victoria a Roadworthy certificate will be valid for 30 days from the date of its issue.

Remember, a roadworthiness inspection test is not a check of the overall reliability or condition of a vehicle. If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then Contact us at to ask about a fully comprehensive 150 point vehicle inspection.

It is possible to sell a vehicle without a roadworthy certificate if it is un-registered, however before that vehicle can be re-registered an RWC does need to be obtained. In some cases a roadworthiness certificate is also needed to clear a vehicle defect notice in Victoria.

    Went there today for a wheel alignment, dropped off my car and went to the shops. When I came back I was told that they checked all four wheels and they were perfect and didn't need any work. He didn't charge me a cent and wished me a good day. This really impressed me and I told him that I really appreciated his honesty. Very rare nowadays! Guess where I will go in the future for any car issues? Thanks again!!
