A Certificate of Roadworthiness, roadworthy or RWC is a certificate that shows that your heavy vehicle is safe enough to be used on public roads. 

Whenever you want to sell your truck, you will need a truck roadworthiness certificate if it is being registered. It basically shows that it is safe enough to be driven.

What is included in truck roadworthy inspections

Truck Roadworhty inspections are checks of the truck to ensure that the key components are safe enough for public road use.
The inspection includes:
  • wheels and tyres
  • steering, suspensions and braking systems
  • seats and seatbelts
  • lights and reflectors
  • windscreen, and windows including front wipers and washers
  • vehicle structure
  • other safety-related items on the body, chassis or engine.

What isn’t included in truck roadworthy inspections

The truck roadworthy is not a check of mechanical reliability and it is also not an inspection into the general condition of the vehicle.

When a Certificate of Roadworthiness is obtained it does not mean that the truck is in tip-top condition. The RWC also does not look at non-safety related accessories like air conditioners and electric windows.

There is the possibility that certain items checked during the inspection might not work afterwards. An example of this could be an indicator light that stops working.

The truck roadworthy inspections also do not take into account whether the vehicle is complying with all of the Australian Design Rules.


If you would like a more comprehensive check

If you would like a more comprehensive check of the vehicles overall condition and reliability you can book in an independent vehicle inspection where our mechanics will inspect all elements in greater detail.

What is the cost of a truck roadworthy? 

Peninsula Diesel Repairs charges for the time spent on the actual inspection rather than having fixed prices for roadworthy inspections. The reason for this is that some roadworthy demand significantly less time than others or in some cases certain minor repairs might be worked on by the vehicle owner to save on cost.
The age, type and condition of a vehicle can also impact how much work is needed to be done for the truck roadworthy.
For this reason, we always do truck roadworthy inspections based on time. However, we can always provide an estimate for your heavy vehicle.

How long before a certificate expires?

A truck roadworthy stays valid for a period of 30 days from the date it is issued and the date it is presented at VicRoads.
This does not mean that the truck necessarily remains roadworthy for this period of time.
