Affordable Road Worthy Certificate

The roadworthy certificate is necessary for re-registering the vehicle, selling the pre-owned vehicle and also for clearing the notice of unroadworthiness of a vehicle.

Our mechanics are licensed to conduct roadworthy inspection and issue a roadworthy certificate for both private and fleet cars in Mitcham, Burwood & Box Hill. Our service station is authorized for offering roadworthy inspection service.

What does a Roadworthy Inspection Include?

In Victoria, you can only drive your car on public roads if it has a roadworthy certificate. So how would you get this certificate and your car back on the roads? The answer is simple. You need to find an authorised auto-service centre that can check, repair and certify your car. Vincent Smash Repairs provides both RWC inspection and certification in our workshop.

To get a roadworthy certificate, your vehicle needs to pass a series of inspections. We examine different parts of your car to ensure that it is safe to be driven on the roads. Our mechanics will check the following parts for any signs of damage or defects:

  • Tyres and Wheels – The car must have perfectly aligned wheels and balanced tyres:

      • The wheel alignment
      • Tyre Condition
      • Balance distribution
  • Brakes – Typically, your brakes are checked once every year during the annual servicing. The RWC inspection checks:

      • Brake lines
      • Brake fluid level
      • Condition of the master cylinder and brake soles
  • Steering and Suspension Systems – The steering and suspension of your car are essentially connected. These two systems are sturdy and do not require maintenance until the car has completed 80,000 kilometres. However, the RWC inspection still needs to check their connections, fittings and level of hydraulic fluid.

  • Windshield – Your windshield is an important part of your vehicle. Hence, it is essential to check the fitting, and condition of the rubber seals holding the glass and working on the wipers and washers. Everything should be in perfect accordance with RWC standards.

  • Seats and Seat Belts – The working of every seatbelt is checked along with the condition and adjustments of the driver seat.

  • Lamps and Reflectors – The condition, intensity, reflector coating, and switches controlling the headlamps, all need to be checked and corrected for a vehicle to get a roadworthy certificate.

  • Vehicular Structure – All the panels and chassis should be completely alright.

  • Safety Standards – The smaller things can make the difference like the:

      • Blinkers
      • Battery wiring
      • Rear-view mirrors
      • Other auto-electronic parts

    The RWC inspection requires them to be working properly.

Why Do You Need a Roadworthy Certificate?

The roadworthy certificate has much more applications than you think. If your car is not newly purchased and you want to cross state boundaries, it’s a good idea to have a roadworthy certificate with you. Here are some scenarios when RWC comes in handy:

  • Re-registration – The re-registration is a separate process that requires separate checks and paperwork. The RWC would not directly get you the re-registration but it will help in the process.

  • Reselling vehicle- A roadworthy certificate is required to resell your car and it can fetch a good resale value.

  • Ensures Road Safety – The RWC inspection certifies that your car is in top condition by checking for damages and getting you to fix them. This increases road safety.
