A certificate of Roadworthiness, also called a roadworthy or RWC, guarantees that your vehicle meets the minimum safety standards to be legally driven on Victorian roads. If you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you first have to acquire a Roadworthy Certificate, issued only by a licensed tester.
The Roadworthy Inspection covers:
- Wheels and tyres
- Steering, suspension and brakes
- Seats and seatbelts
- Lights and reflectors
- Windscreen, windows and wipers
It does not cover aspects of the vehicle unrelated to safety, such as air conditioning, electric windows etc.
