Roadworthy Certificate

Why do you Need a Roadworthy Certificate?

It’s a requirement of the Victorian law that every car is issued with a valid Roadworthy Certificate. If you’re buying, selling or re-registering a car in Melbourne or the rest of Victoria, it’s against the law to do so without a Roadworthy.

Before you’re able to register a vehicle in your name, or change the registration into the name of the car buyer, the vehicle has to be tested for roadworthiness. This can be carried out at a public or private testing station. The process is in place to help minimise the number of poorly maintained vehicles out on the road and avoid any accidents due to failure of vehicles.

You must have your Roadworthy inspection carried out by a licensed vehicle tester in Melbourne, like Western Auto.
