What is Roadworthy Certificate?
A Roadworthy Certificate (also known as an RWC) is required whenever a vehicle’s sold, if it’s being re-registered, and to clear some defect notices.
A Certificate of Roadworthiness isn’t a guarantee that a vehicle’s mechanically reliable, it just shows that it’s safe enough to be driven.
Buying a motorbike?
When you are looking at purchasing a pre-owned motorbike, you must ensure the vehicle has an up to date Roadworthy Certificate.
For the purpose of any transaction, the RWC is valid for a 30 day period from the date of issue.
Selling a motorbike?
If you are planning to sell a motorcycle, you should provide an RWC in order to make it easier to sell your motorcycle.

What is not checked during a roadworthy inspection
The roadworthiness test isn’t a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of a vehicle. A Certificate of Roadworthiness does not mean that:
The vehicle is in top condition without any wear or deterioration
Non-safety related accessories (such as the air conditioner, rear window demister, electric windows and rear-window wipers) are working
The items checked during the roadworthy inspection will continue to function after the inspection, e.g. a brake light can stop functioning at any time after the inspection
The vehicle complies with all of the Australian Design Rules (ADRs)
These are some basic things you can check before you bring your motorcycle to us
Please note that the items mentions above are only some of the criteria that a motorcycle has to satisfy to successfully obtain a Roadworthy Certificate (RWC). There are many more checks conducted during a Roadworthy Test by our licensed testers and examiners.
If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then we can arrange for a separate independent vehicle inspection to be carried out for you
