Do You Do Mobile Roadworthy/ Safety Certificates?

Can You Come Now
Try your luck, usually our inspectors can come the same day, if not, we aim to serve you within 24-48 hours.
Why Do I Need A Safety Certificate?

The Safety Certificate is designed to keep vehicles that are on the road safe to avoid accidents caused by un-roadworthy and defective vehicles. This offers the buyer protection when purchasing that the vehicle meets the minimum safety standards.


How Long Does a Safety Certificate Take To Do?
A Safety Certificate will take approximately 30-45 minutes. At the completion of the inspection, a detailed written report will be issued. If the vehicle fails the safety inspection, you have 14 days to rectify the problem and call us back out for a re-inspection.
How Long Are Safety Certificates Current For?
All other sellers: Certificates are valid for 2 months or 2000km (whichever comes first) from the date of issue.
Licensed motor dealers: Certificates are valid for 3 months or 1000km (whichever comes first) from the date of issue.
What If It Fails The First Inspection, Do I Have To Pay Again?

No you will not have to pay the roadworthy fee on the second inspection.


What If It Fails The Second Inspection/ Final Inspection?

Unfortunately you will need to repair those items and start the process all over again.


What Vehicles Must Have A Safety Certificate?
In Queensland, you must obtain a valid Safety Certificate on any registered vehicle when it is offered for sale.

 If you have moved from interstate to Queensland and require changing the registration from one state to another a Safety Certificate is required.

Unregistered vehicles including cars, motorbikes, trailers and trucks require a Safety Certificate for a New Registration Application.
What Is The Difference Between A Safety Certificate And A Pre-Purchase Inspection?
A Safety Certificate is a basic safety check in accordance with Queensland Transports Code of Practice. This is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle.
A Pre-Purchase Inspection is a comprehensive condition report of the vehicle. This report informs the potential buyer of exactly what they are purchasing.
A Safety Certificate is a check that the vehicle passes the minimum safety standards. There may still be issues with the vehicle that are not a direct safety issue that need to be addressed.
Before booking a mobile roadworthy Brisbane we recommend you have a Pre-Purchase Inspection on any second hand vehicle. It has saved many clients a lot of money and gives them peace of mind when purchasing their vehicles.
