Roadworthy and Safety Certificate
In Queensland a vehicle requires a safety inspection to enable it to be transferred between owners. Also, unregistered vehicles require a safety certificate to be registered.
If a vehicle is advertised for sale and registered, Queensland law requires the certificate must be displayed in the vehicle.
The safety certificate for Private sales is valid for 2 months or 2000 Klms from the date of inspection.
A safety certificate only ensures the vehicle is compliant with Queensland Transport Standards, safety certificates do not ensure the vehicle is without problems.
Northside Automotive recommends you have a pre-purchase inspection carried out prior to purchasing any vehicle.
