Safety Certificates

What is a Safety Certificate?

A Safety Certificate is a certificate issued after a vehicle passes a safety inspection. It covers basic safety items and offers buyers better protection, ensuring vehicles being offered for disposal or being re-registered are safe for operation. A Safety Certificate/Roadworthy also covers the safe operations of the vehicle.

When do you require a Safety Certificate?

A Safety Certificate is needed if you’re selling a vehicle or transferring the ownership of your vehicle. In Queensland new registration of a vehicle also requires you to provide a safety certificate. This includes: cars, utes, 4X4’s, small trucks, trailers (including caravans) with an aggregate trailer mass (ATM) of 0.751–3.50 tonnes. Any other vehicles up to 4.50 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM) also need to meet the minimum safety standard stipulated by Queensland Transport.

How long are safety certificates current for?

Once we’ve completed the inspection of your vehicle, we’ll issue a detailed report. If the vehicle fails the safety inspection, you have 14 days to rectify the problem — this can be completed by us straight away or you can call us back to complete a re-inspection once completed. Our workshop handles all and any issues that may be found.
