Certificates (RWC)

Ensure your vehicle meets the legal requirements with a Roadworthy Certificate from S.S.C Mechanics.

A roadworthy certificate is required when a vehicle is sold, if a vehicle needs to be re-registered or if the vehicle has a clear defect. This can only be issued by a licensed vehicle tester such as S.S.C Mechanics. As a fully licensed roadworthy certificate provider, S.S.C Mechanics carefully inspect your vehicle and ensure that it is safe to drive on the roads! Contact us today to book your RWC inspection.

How long does a Roadworthy Certificate last?

A RWC for the purpose of registering or transferring a vehicle remains current for 30 days before expiring.

How do I get a Roadworthy Certificate?

In Melbourne, roadworthy certificates can only be provided by licensed vehicle testers.

What happens if the Roadworthy Certificate fails?

The vehicle must pass each item in the inspection. If one item is rejected then the vehicle fails the road worthy inspection. You have 7 days to repair or replace the rejected item and then have the rejected item re checked. If more than 7 days lapses, a full inspection is then required.

What can we provide a Roadworthy Certificate for?

  • Cars and trailers under 4.5 tonne
  • Recreational vehicle (RV) under 4.5 tonne
  • Vehicles fitted with LPG

What is included in a Roadworthy Certificate?

  • Wheels and tyres – including wear and tear to your tyres, hubcaps, tyre pressure, fitting of valve caps, and tread depth
  • Lights – including brake lights, indicators, headlights, number plate lights and fog lights
  • Steering and suspension – including shock absorbers, suspension bushes, springs, ball joints, tie rod ends, and power steering fluid
  • Brakes – including brake pads and rotors

What isn’t included in a roadworthy certificate?

  • Non-safety related issues such as air conditioning, read window wipers and de-mister
  • Compliance with Australian Design Rules
  • Paint and the aesthetic of your vehicle

It’s important to remember that components such as brake lights might stop functioning after a RWC inspection, so drivers must be careful to monitor their cars’ performance.
