Roadworthy Certificates

Manuel Automatics are a VicRoads Lisensed Roadworthy Certificate tester qualitifed to test your vehicle if it's being sold or re-registered.

Manuel Automatics are proud to announce we are a Licensed Roadworthy Certificate tester! As well as offering accredited RACV Independent Vehicle Inspection Service, we can now fully test your vehicle and provide a Roadworthy Certificate.

What is a Roadworthy Certificate?

A Roadworthy Certificate is required when a vehicle is sold, if a used vehicle is to be re-registered, or to clear a vehicle defect. The Roadworthy Certificate is issued no more than 30 days prior to any application for the registration or transfer.

What is inspected?

The inspection is a check of the vehicle to ensure that the key components are in a fit condition for safe road use. It includes:

  • Wheels and tyres
  • Steering, suspensions and braking systems
  • Seats and seatbelts
  • Lights and reflectors
  • Windscreen, and windows including front wipers and washers
  • Vehicle structure
  • Other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine
The Certificate does not mean:
  • That the vehicle is in top condition without any wear or deterioration.
  • Non-safety related accessories such as the air conditioner, rear window demister, electric windows and rear-window wipers are working.
  • That the items checked during the roadworthy inspection will continue to function after the inspection e.g. a brake light can stop functioning at any time after the inspection.
What if my vehicle fails the Roadworthy?

If an item fails to meet the requirements, the tester will issue a rejection report. You will be given 7 days to repair or replace the rejected items and have those rejected item inspected again. If more than 7 days elapse a full inspection is then required.
