Roadworthy & Safety Certificates

If you’re in the market for a used vehicle, it’s important to ensure it’s safe to be on the road and compliant with government legal requirements.

As a vehicle ages it can become unreliable, particularly if the log book servicing has not been kept up to date; therefore, you should always choose a registered and reliable inspection centre to complete your road worthy check.


If you require

Our registered and experienced team will then organise an inspection on your vehicle and assist in any repairs that may need to be carried out. In other words, we’ll coordinate everything you need to get your vehicle through the inspection process!

You require a safety certificate if you are buying or transferring the ownership of a car, motorbike, trailer or vehicle up to 4500kg GVM.

In addition, you’ll need the certificate when transferring registration to Queensland from another state or when re-registering another vehicle.

During your roadworthy and safety inspection, they will look at your vehicle’s tyres, brakes, steering, suspension, windscreen and lights.

They will also check for rust or body damage that may affect the integrity of the vehicle.

If any issues are found, we’ll give you a list of jobs with an attached quote that need to be completed before your vehicle can be signed off; once completed and re-checked, they will issue you with a safety certificate that can be presented with your transfer documents.


I am extremely happy with the service and results after having Gary fix my car! They were both so friendly with old school service making sure I was happy and understood everything. They are not out to rip you off just want to do what’s best for you! Highly recommend.  Kristy Tippet
