What is a roadworthy inspection?
A Roadworthy Inspection is a basic safety check for your car. It is an inspection of key components of the vehicle to ensure that they have not worn or deteriorated and that the vehicle is safe for road use.
What does the inspection cover?
Safety related components inspected include:
◊ Wheels and tyres
◊ Steering, suspension and braking systems
◊ Seats and seat belts
◊ Lamps and lamp reflectors
◊ Windscreen, and windows including front windscreen wipers and washers
◊ The structure of the vehicle itself
◊ Other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.
What a roadworthy certificate is not:
◊ A guarantee that the vehicle is in top condition without any wear or deterioration
◊ A check of the operation of non-safety related accessories such as the air-conditioner, rear window demister and rear window wipers
◊ A guarantee that the items checked during the roadworthy inspection will continue to function after the inspection e.g. a brake light can stop functioning at any time after the inspection
