In Victoria to sell a car you require a Road Worthy Certificate. This ensures the car is maintained and will kept so you and your family are safe.
A roadworthy inspection will cover all major safety items including
¨ wheels and tyres;
¨ steering, suspension and braking systems;
¨ seats and seat belts;
¨ lamps and reflectors;
¨ windscreen, and windows including front windscreen wipers and
¨ the structure of the vehicle itself; &
¨ other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.
It’s important to know that a Victorian roadworthiness test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle.
If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then you should arrange for a separate independent report such as those offered by the RACV, or let us assist you here at
Alfa Donnini Repairs.
The certificate 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
¨ its important to note that the items checked during the roadworthy
inspection will continue to function after the inspection eg. a brake
light can stop functioning at any time after the inspection.
