RWC (Roadworthy Certificate)
How long is the certificate valid for
The Roadworthy certificate is valid for 30 days from the day it was issued.
The cost of certificate
The cost of obtaining a certificate is not fixed and can depend on the age, type and the condition of the vehicle.
If the vehicle fails the test
If an item fails to meet the requirements, the tester will issue a rejection report. You will be given 7 days to repair or replace the rejected items and have those rejected item inspected again. If more than 7 days elapse a full inspection is then required.
If you require a comprehensive vehicle inspection
If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then you should arrange for a separate independent vehicle inspection report.
The roadworthiness test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle.

In Victoria a Certificate of Roadworthiness is generally required when a vehicle is sold or if a used vehicle is to be re-registered. This helps minimise the number of poorly maintained vehicles on the road. In some cases a Certificate of Roadworthiness is also required to clear a Vehicle Defect Notice or a Notice of Unroadworthiness. A Certificate of Roadworthiness can only be issued by a licensed vehicle tester, operating from a nominated garage.
