Issue of Certificates
In Victoria a Certificate of Roadworthiness is generally required when a vehicle is sold or if a used vehicle is to be re-registered. This helps minimise the number of poorly maintained vehicles on the road. In some cases a Certificate of Roadworthiness is also required to clear a Vehicle Defect Notice or a Notice of Unroadworthiness.
A Certificate of Roadworthiness can only be issued by a licensed vehicle tester, operating from a nominated garage or service station.
