What Is A Safety Certificate For?

A safety certificate or roadworthy certificate is issued after your car undergoes a safety inspection. It covers basic safety items and provides second hand car buyers more protection with their purchase. Safety certificates or roadworthy certificates ensure that cars being registered are safe to operate on the road.
You’ll need a safety certificate if you’re transferring ownership of your vehicle or selling it. Newly registered or re-registered cars also need safety certificates. Cars, utes, 4WDs, small trucks, and trailers (with an aggregate trailer mass of 0.751–3.50 tonnes) all require safety certificates.

How Long Do Roadworthy Certificates Last In QLD?

It depends who’s selling the vehicle. If you’re a licensed motor dealer, the certificate is valid for three months or 1,000 kilometres — whichever comes first. Certificates are valid for two months for all other sellers, or 2,000 kilometres — whichever comes first.

Things To Remember

If your vehicle fails the initial inspection, our mechanics will issue a full report of what needs to be done to pass it. We can complete the repairs ourselves or you can organise to transport your vehicle somewhere else for the repairs. We’ll handle any issue that could be found other than structural damage (we can recommend someone for this). You’ll have 14 days to rectify any issues before we reinspect.
