Note this list is a guide only and is not an exhaustive list of items checked during a roadworthy inspection.
It should be noted the inspection for a roadworthy certificate is not a comprehensive mechanical inspection. When buying a used car, we suggest you get a pre-purchase inspection for the car. This can be booked with Redbook Inspect for a discounted fee.
If the vehicle passes the inspection, the inspector will issue you with an electronic or handwritten roadworthy certificate as required by the Department of Transport WA.
If the vehicle fails the inspection, you are required to rectify the failed items and re-book and inspection with us. Charges apply for a re-inspection.
You will be issued with a report from our inspector which outlines which components have failed the inspection. You will be required to book a re-inspection with us.
