If you’re looking for a reliable roadworthy certificate (RWC) in Heidelberg, contact the team at Autoclinic. As a VicRoads licensed vehicle tester, we are authorised to carry out roadworthy inspections on all makes and models.
Roadworthy certificates are required by law if you’re looking to buy, sell or re-register a car in Victoria, or if you need to clear a police defect.
What is Inspected
A roadworthy inspection tests the safety-related components of a vehicle to ensure that it meets a basic standard of roadworthiness as set out by VicRoads.
The RWC inspection includes:
- Seats and belts
- Reflectors and lamps
- Tyres and wheels
- Suspension, steering and braking systems
- Windows and windscreen
- Windscreen wiper blades and washer system
- The overall structure of your vehicle
- Other safety-related items on the chassis, body or engine
An RWC does not document the mechanical reliability, general condition or cosmetic condition of the vehicle. Nor does the inspection include non-essential vehicle components, such as air conditioning.
What if your Vehicle Fails the Inspection?
If your vehicle fails the inspection, we will issue a rejection report, which outlines the vehicle defects. You will then have seven days to fix the issues before having your car re-inspected. If your vehicle is not fixed within the seven-day period, it will need to undergo another full roadworthy inspection before it can receive an RWC.
At Autoclinic, we offer a complete range of vehicle inspections, car service options and repairs. We have a team of the best mechanics in Heidelberg and more than 30 years’ experience in the automotive industry. You can trust us to quickly and affordably fix any defects identified during the RWC inspection.
