Roadworthy Certificate – Elsternwick

A roadworthy certificate (RWC) is required by law if you want to buy, sell or re-register a used car. An RWC may also be required to clear a police defect.

If you’re looking for a roadworthy certificate near Elsternwick, then contact the team at JJ Service Centre. We are a VicRoads licensed vehicle tester, which means we are authorised to provide RWCs in Victoria.

We provide fast and affordable roadworthy inspections on all vehicle makes and models. All inspections are carried out according to VicRoads guidelines and are 100% reliable.

Why Do I Need an RWC?

An RWC is required by law if you want to buy, sell or re-register a used car. An RWC may also be required to clear a police defect.

The roadworthy inspection is designed to determine whether your vehicle meets the minimum safety standards to drive on Victorian roads. It covers all a vehicle’s essential safety components including:

  • Roadworthy Certificate St Kilda EastSeats and seat belts
  • Exhaust and emissions
  • Wheels and tyres
  • Steering, suspension and braking systems
  • Windscreen and windows including front wipers and washers
  • Lights and reflectors
  • Vehicle structure
  • Other safety-related items on body, chassis or engine

The inspection does not cover non-safety components and accessories, like air conditioning, nor does it take into account the vehicle’s cosmetic condition or mechanical reliability.

Pass or Fail

If your car passes the inspection, we will provide you with a roadworthy certificate on the spot. The RWC will be valid for 30 days from the date of inspection.

If your car fails the inspection, we will issue a rejection report that outlines the vehicle’s defects. You will then have seven days to fix the defects and present the vehicle for re-inspection.

We offer a complete range of car service and repairs. That means we can fix any defects on the spot, re-inspect your vehicle and issue you the RWC.
