Safety Certificate Station
In Queensland Roadworthy certificates are now referred to as Safety certificates.
If you are selling a vehicle you must always obtain and display a safety certificate for any registered light vehicle from the moment you offer the vehicle for sale. A safety certificate is also a requisite for unregistered used vehicles (second hand) and also registered interstate vehicles as part of the Queensland pre-registration process although there are some exemptions.
Some exemptions include (but are not limited to) when the vehicle is unregistered or being traded between licensed motor dealers or When a vehicle is being sold for parts or restoration (but these must be de-registered before being offered for sale)
Safety certificates must be always be displayed in a clearly visible spot on the vehicle for example:
• motorbikes - on the front forks or guard
• cars - in the car windscreen or window
• trailers -on the draw-bar.
If you fail to display a safety certificate on your vehicle as soon as you offer it for sale you risk an on-the-spot fine of $500.
For the most current information on Car Safety Certificates and exemptions phone the Department of Transport and Main Roads on 13 23 80 or contact us today.
Safety certificates can only be issued by approved inspection stations. Wedmaier's Garage is your Ipswich and Riverview Safety Certificate Inspection station.
