A roadworthy inspection is the process where your mechanic will prove that the vehicle you want to buy is in good shape, is completely functional and safe to drive.

Roadworthy certificates are an essential according to Queensland Transport when transferring a second hand vehicle to a new owner, transferring to Queensland registration from another state or re-registering an unregistered vehicle. Vehicles that require roadworthy certificates include cars, motorcycles and trailers, and any other vehicle up to 4,500kg Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM).
Roadworthy/safety certificates are essential to guarantee that the vehicle complies with basic standards. A roadworthy inspection must be completed by a qualified mechanic where they will check the functionality of the tyres, brakes, steering, suspension, windscreen, lights and check the body for rust or damage.
You must carry all necessary certificates when selling a registered used car and not doing so can incur a hefty fine. The new owner of the car won't be able to transfer the car without a written report or safety certificate.

How much does a Sunshine Coast roadworthy certificate cost?
The cost of acquiring a roadworthy certificate or inspection changes every year as per Government guidelines.
How long does Sunshine Coast roadworthy last?
According to the Queensland Government, the time a safety certificate is valid depends on the type of sale:
For licensed motor dealers - certificates are valid for 3 months or 1,000km (whichever expires first) from the date of issue
For all other sellers—certificates are valid for 2 months or 2,000km (whichever expires first) from the date of issue.
You can use the same safety certificate to register an unregistered vehicle and then transfer the registration, as long as you do this within the limits set out previously.
You will need to get a new certificate every time you sell a vehicle, even if you sell it within the limits set out previously.
Does a Sunshine Coast roadworthy certificate cover all of Queensland?
Yes it does. If you're moving from a location in another state you will need to reregister in Queensland, and visa versa.
