Roadworthy Certificate

Why do I need one?

It is a requirement for every car to be at a roadworthy standard before changing owners. Never put your car up for sale before you get a roadworthy appraisal. It is easy to lose out on your sale this way!

How does it work?

We can assist you in securing the roadworthy certificate through our trusted 3rd party partners after we complete the pre-inspection and repairs (if required) of your vehicle.

Should your vehicle require repairs after the pre-inspection process is complete, we will have 2 weeks to complete the repairs. Otherwise another pre-inspection will be required.

Only after the pre-inspection and repairs (if required) is complete, will your car be sent off to our trusted 3rd part to obtain the roadworthy certificate.

This certificate is valid for 30 days from the date of issue. Once this period lapses, you will need to start the process again.

For your convenience and peace of mind, we can guide and assist you through this entire process to ensure you are compliant with the roadworthy regulations.

Need more information?

You can complete the VicRoads transfer forms on VicRoads website, using the Roadworthy Certificate to obtain relevant vehicle identification numbers.

Transfer forms are for transfer of registration only and are not for “title of goods”. So make sure you do a security check before finalising the deal. This will tell you if there is any outstanding amount owing to a finance company attached to the vehicle. If there is the new owner will also own this debt!

If you are the seller be sure you obtain payment in a secure manner, ie. EFT, cash or bank cheque.

We recommend that you secure yourself against further liabilities in the event of a legal problem concerning “title of goods”.

Above all else, make sure you read through details on the VicRoads website.
