In Queensland to transfer the registration you require a Safety Certificate. This is also required when advertising a vehicle for sale and remains valid for 60 days.
Previously Safety Certificates were referred to as Roadworthy. Not much has changed over the last 20 years about the inspection, or what is required other than when advertising a vehicle for sale.
In Queensland all registered vehicles must have a current Safety Certificate or Roadworthy Certificate whilst they are offered for sale. You can be fined for not displaying a current Safety Certificate Label on the vehicle.
Be proactive in obtaining your Safety Certificate when considering selling your car. A Safety Certificate inspection can reveal items required that you may not have considered prior to agreeing on a price when selling your car. Further if your purchasing a car, a Safety Certificate is not a warranty. Its your assurance that the vehicle is safe, and complies with Queensland Transport requirements to be registered and driven on Queensland roads.
We also are approved and issue Safety Certificates for light trailers and caravans. This means we are able to offer Safety Certificates at your place or our service centre located at 1257 Anzac Avenue Kallangur. With a Caravan you will also require a Gas Certificate for the domestic gas. We can arrange for this also.
