If you’re looking to get a Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) for your car, it’s important to note that the requirements can vary depending on the state or territory you’re in. Regardless of where you are in Australia, it’s crucial that the inspection is conducted by a licensed professional authorized to issue RWCs.
How long does the inspection take? When booking a roadworthy certificate inspection, it’s best to set aside 2-4 hours. The specific requirements for each state may differ, but generally include taking detailed photos of your vehicle, a road test, and a safety check in accordance with your state’s regulations. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have beforehand or on the day of the inspection.
What happens if I pass or fail? If your vehicle passes the inspection, you will usually receive an electronic roadworthy certificate. If it fails, you’ll have a certain amount of time (depending on your state) to complete any necessary repairs and bring the vehicle back for a follow-up inspection. You can choose to get the repairs done elsewhere, or take advantage of Ultra Tune’s expert team of repairers to help you get your car roadworthy. Our state-by-state guide can help you determine when you need a roadworthy certificate and how to get one in your local area.
