A roadworthy certificate which is available in Kew area is required when a vehicle is sold, when a used vehicle is to be re-registered or in some cases to clear a vehicle defect. It can only be issued by a licensed vehicle tester. Brand new vehicles and some vehicles which were not designed primarily for carrying passengers or goods on a highway and considered to be a specially constructed vehicle are exempt from requiring a roadworthy certificate.
A roadworthy investigation is made to check if a vehicle can be guaranteed that it is not weakened and is fine for utilisation. During the investigation checks are made on the wheels and tyres, directing, suspension and slowing mechanisms, seats and seat sash, lights and reflectors, windscreen and windows including the wipers and washers, structure of the vehicle itself and other security related things on the body, suspension or motor.
When the vehicle passes the full inspection then the roadworthy certificate can be issued from a nominated garage or service station. Currently the certificate required for purpose of registering or transferring a vehicle is the one that has been issued not more than 30 days prior to any application made for registration or transfer.
The cost of the investigation performed depends on the age, type and condition of the vehicle and it is always better to ask for a quote from a licensed vehicle tester. If the vehicle fails the test then seven days time is given for repairing the vehicle and it is then inspected again. Thus we see that roadworthy inspection is a way to guarantee that a vehicle will work well and can only be issued by an authority after vehicle inspection has been done and everything is in proper order.
