Mobile Roadworthys

Are mobile roadworthys required before selling a car?

Yes, absolutely. There is a provision under the Act for Queensland Transport to issue harsh fines in any case where a vehicle is offered or advertised for sale prior to safety certificates being obtained. This applies not only to cars, but also motorcycles, trailers and caravans. Safety certificates are a must for all vehicles for sale and it’s just not worth the risk; simply book a roadworthy certificate inspection now and let Mobile Safety Certificates R Us issue you with safety certificates documentation.

Mobile Safety Certificates R Us will come to you for your convenience, whether it is to your home or workplace (or anywhere else you require us to attend) and carry out the inspection and issue a roadworthy certificate (safety certificates) on the spot.

For mobile car safety certificates (roadworthy certificates or RWC), it’s as easy as a phone call to Mike.

What happens at the inspection?

At the conclusion of the inspection, an online or written certificate will be issued to you by the mobile inspector.

If the vehicle fails the inspection, you have 14 days to rectify any issues and to call us back to schedule a re-inspection.

If a vehicle is not registered, there is no legal requirement for vendors to provide safety certificates.

For any vehicle that is registered, the vendor must provide a roadworthy certificate (safety certificates) according to Queensland law. Failure to do so will result in a penalty; that is, a fine.

The vendors may also be fined if they are caught advertising any registered vehicle for sale without valid safety certificates.

Safety certificates (roadworthy certificate) for private vendors remain valid for a period of two months or 2000km, whichever occurs first.

Motor dealers’ safety certificates (roadworthy certificate) are valid for three months or 1000km, whichever occurs first.
