The Most Thorough Roadworthy Testing Service In Melbourne

If you are either buying or selling a car, then you would naturally want to make sure that everything is up to scratch (without any actual scratches, of course). No one wants to spend thousands of dollars on a car that will stall on you at any moment. So if you are in need of a Roadworthy Certificate for a car, then drive on down to Richmond Automotive Car Care Centre for our thorough inspection service.

As licensed vehicle testers, we can undertake a thorough assessment of your car to ensure it meets the required standards.

When are Roadworthy Certificates required?

How do you know when your vehicle needs an inspection? Here in Melbourne, drivers must abide by state legislation. According to Vic Roads, this means you will need to acquire a certificate when selling a vehicle (providing the vehicle is registered), if re-registration is required (because the current registration has lapsed), or in some cases to clear a vehicle defect notice.

If you are selling or re-registering, it is important to note that the roadworthy is valid for 30 days from the date of issue. This means that you will need to apply for the transfer or renewal of registration within that time frame.

What our Richmond based vehicle inspection service will cover

No one can underestimate the importance of the safety of a car, or any type of vehicle for that matter. The car must pass our thorough roadworthy testing so we can be sure that all of its functions are working properly. Once we have repaired any faults or body damage we find, we will give you and the vehicle the all clear and present you with a Roadworthy Certificate.

This Melbourne based auto mechanic will begin by checking vehicle structure to ensure it appears sound, and will also check if the headlights work (both the light globes and the wiring). We will ensure the vehicle’s suspension and the brake and clutch work so the car can be operated safely. The tyres, seat belts, windscreen and everything in between will be looked over with the utmost care.

A vehicle inspection is not something our mechanics at Richmond Car Care take lightly. Ensuring the car’s functionality and your safety are our top priority. If are you in need of our services, please call us at (03) 9428 5693 so we can begin our work soon.
