Because you can’t sell or transfer a registered vehicle without one!
By law, a Safety Certificate (or ‘Roadworthy Certificate’) is a required document that must be obtained prior the offer of any registered vehicle for sale. …and that’s where we can help!
Our inspections take less than an hour to complete and provide a full and thorough report detailing whether a vehicle has passed or failed inspection. Don’t worry if your vehicle fails – you have up to fourteen days to rectify any issues and get a re-inspection.
The Safety Certificate ensures vehicles on the road are safe, helping to prevent accidents caused by otherwise non-roadworthy vehicles. This ensures buyer/seller protection during a purchase, certifying a vehicle has met the required minimum safety standards.
Our approved and experienced vehicle inspectors adhere to a strict code of practice, in keeping with the standards of the Queensland Department Transport and Main Roads. Upon completion, you will be provided both an electronically issued and printed certificate, and emailed a PDF copy for your records, (copies should be kept incase of request by the relevant authorities; police, Transport inspector, or by request of buyer/buyer’s agent).
Please note, the only circumstances where a Safety Certificate (RWC) may NOT be required are as follows: o The disposer of the vehicle is within a specified area of exemption.
o The recipient of the vehicle is the beneficiary of a deceased estate.
o The transfer of the vehicle is between spouses (including separated couples/partners that are still married/registered– only until such time that any divorce or application to end registered relationship is finalised).
In the event that our inspectors deem your vehicle un-roadworthy and it fails, you will receive a repair notice that grants the recipient 14 days from date of inspection to complete the required repairs.
Instant Mobile Roadworthys policy ensures you won’t be charged for a full inspection for your second inspection, only a call-out fee of $49 (subject to location). In the event your required repairs take longer than the fourteen-day limit, please get in touch to arrange a new certification booking.
Our Safety Certificates can also be used for new registration, late registration renewal, or registration transfer purposes in the State of Queensland: click here for further information.

We can often conduct an inspection unattended, just get in touch beforehand and let us know where we can collect the vehicle keys, and complete payment over the phone.
The simple answer is – Yes, absolutely.
