Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) and Inspections

When you need to re-register your vehicle or sell it or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you are legally required to first obtain a roadworthy certificate, issued by a licensed tester after a thorough inspection. This inspection ensures that your vehicle meets the minimum safety standards to be driven legally on Victorian roads. This helps reduce the number of poor condition vehicles on the road, while ensuring people’s and your safety.

Because of the authority of RWC (Roadworthy Certificate), Vicroads only accept the Certificates of Roadworthiness issued by a licensed vehicle tester, operating from a licensed car services centre or workshop. Once the vehicle passes a roadworthy inspection in our workshop, the Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) is issued for your vehicle.

A Roadworthy Certificate remains valid for 30 days after the date of issue. If any item fails to meet the standard, it must be repaired within 7 days or a complete inspection must again be carried out on the vehicle.

A roadworthy inspection covers the major safety related items, including:

  • Tyres and wheels
  • Suspension, steering and braking systems
  • All seat and seat belts
  • Reflectors, light and lamp
  • Windscreen and its wipers and washers
  • All glass and windows in the vehicle
  • The structure and integration of the vehicle itself
  • Engine, chassis, body and other safety related items
