A Roadworthy Certificate (RWC) is more than just a document; it is a proof that your vehicle meets the safety standards required by law. For any car owner planning to sell, re-register, or clear a defect notice on their vehicle in Australia, obtaining an RWC is a mandatory step. At Carr Care Automotive, we are here to guide you through why, when, and how to secure your Roadworthy Certificate smoothly and efficiently.

What is a Roadworthy Certificate?

A Roadworthy Certificate is issued following a thorough inspection of a vehicle, ensuring it is safe for road use. This inspection doesn’t encompass mechanical reliability but focuses on critical safety components such as:

  • Wheels and tyres
  • Steering, suspensions, and braking systems
  • Seats and seatbelts
  • Lights and reflectors
  • Windscreen and wipers
  • Overall structure of the vehicle

Obtaining an RWC ensures that key aspects of your car are up to the standard required for safe driving.
