Roadworthy Certificates

We offer a cost effective and efficient Roadworthy service (RWC) in our Richmond workshop. We are licensed vehicle testers and are qualified to carry out roadworthy inspections on petrol and diesel passenger and light commercial vehicles.

How to get a Roadworthy:

  2. On the day of your inspection, bring in your vehicle accompanied by your driver’s license. We will assess your vehicle, the process generally takes around 2 hours and we will you inform you once we have completed the inspection.
  3. If the vehicle passes the inspection, a roadworthy certificate will be issued. If not go to step 4.
  4. If vehicle fails the first inspection, we will provide a list of items that will need to be rectified for the certificate to be issued. We will also provide you with a quote of the repair costs required. If the vehicle has rust or damage to structural sections, you may be required to have the vehicle assessed by a panel repair shop. The panel repair shop will be required to fill in a Structural Repair Report form found on the VicRoads website here.
