Questions and answers........

What is the reason for a roadworthy?

First and foremost, having a roadworthy vehicle is crucial for the safety of yourself, your passengers, and other road users. Ensuring that your vehicle is in good working condition can help prevent accidents and keeping everyone on the road safe. In addition, having a roadworthy vehicle is also a legal requirement in Queensland. To comply with regulations and avoid fines or penalties, it is important to ensure that your vehicle meets the necessary roadworthy standards.

When do i need to get a roadworthy?

If you have moved from another state and need to register your vehicle under QLD, purchased a vehicle without a roadworthy certificate, are selling a registered vehicle, drive a personalised transport service (like a taxi or uber), or if your vehicle's registration has expired, then you need to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy.

How long does a roadworthy last?

The Safety certificate is valid for:

- Private- 2 months / 2000km

- Licensed motor dealers- 3 months/ 1000km

whichever expires first.

What is a mobile roadworthy?

By choosing to have a mobile roadworthy, you'll not only save time and money, but also avoid the hassle of bringing your car to a local garage. Our technicians come to you, allowing you to skip the trip and the need for a day pass from TMR. Our mobile roadworthy service offers the flexibility to schedule an appointment at a time and location that suits you best, minimising any disruptions to your day.

How much does a roadworthy cost?

The cost of a roadworthy certificate depends on several factors, such as the type of vehicle (car, trailer, truck), your location, and the urgency of needing the certificate. For example, a ca roadworthy may range from $110 to $200, while a larger vehicle like trucks or trailers may incur a higher cost. 

What do you inspect?

During a Queensland roadworthy inspection, we carefully examine the brakes, tyres, search for any oil leaks, inspect the front and rear lights, assess the seat belts, inspect the condition of the seats, evaluate the suspension and steering, and ensure compliance with all TMR (transport of main roads) rules and regulations for all other components.

What happens if my vehicle fails a roadworthy?

If your vehicle fails the roadworthy inspection, you will have 14 days to complete all necessary repairs. Within this time frame, we will return to reinspect the vehicle for a small travel fee. If the repairs are not completed within the 14 days, a new inspection will be required. Please note, these rules are set by TMR, not by Roadworthy 2 U.
