If you require a roadworthy certificate (RWC) in Ivanhoe, then get in touch with team at Autoclinic. As a VicRoads licensed vehicle tester, we are authorised to provide roadworthy inspections and certificates.

In Victoria, you are legally required to obtain a roadworthy certificate (RWC) if you’re looking to buy, sell or re-register a vehicle.

An RWC inspection checks all essential vehicle components to ensure that your car is in proper working condition and safe to drive on Victorian roads.

What Does a Roadworthy Inspection Include?

The roadworthy inspection involves checking key components of your vehicle to make sure they are functional. The inspection includes:

  • Wheels and tyres
  • Vehicle structure
  • Seats and seat belts
  • Lights and reflectors
  • Steering, suspension and braking systems
  • Windscreen and windows including wipers and washers
  • Other safety items and systems such as chassis, engine and more

A roadworthy inspection does not include checks of non-essential vehicle components such as air conditioning. An RWC is not a guarantee of mechanical reliability, but instead a certification that the vehicle meets the basic standards of roadworthiness as set by VicRoads.

Issuing an RWC

If you’re looking for an RWC near Ivanhoe, visit the team at Autoclinic. We will carry out a fast and affordable vehicle inspection and issue your RWC on the spot if your vehicle passes.

If it fails the inspection, a rejection report will be issued. The report outlines any defects that must be repaired before the vehicle can be certified. These defects must be repaired within seven days and the car presented for re-inspection. If the defects are not rectified within seven days, the vehicle must undergo another full roadworthy inspection.
