Roadworthy certificates are often required when a vehicle is sold or if a used car is to be re-registered. A roadworthy certificate helps to reduce the number of badly maintained cars on our roads. In some instances, a roadworthy certificate is required to clear a vehicle defect or un-roadworthiness notice.

A roadworthy certificate can only be issued by a licensed vehicle tester that is operating from a nominated garage or service outlet. McKay Automotive are fully licensed and authorised to provide a roadworthiness certification service from our workshop in Sale.

For us to issue a valid roadworthy certificate, your vehicle must pass a roadworthiness inspection. The inspection is a check of the vehicle to ensure that major components have not worn or deteriorated and that the car is safe for regular road use.

A roadworthy inspection only covers the major safety-related components and includes but is not limited to:

  • Wheels and tyres
  • Steering
  • Suspension and braking systems
  • Seats and seat belts
  • Lamps and reflectors
  • Windscreen and windows, including front windscreen wipers and washers
  • The structure of the vehicle and safety-related items on the body, chassis and engine

The roadworthy test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of your vehicle.
