Bartlett Automotive is authorised to perform Victorian roadworthy inspections. This inspection is to ensure that that key components are in good enough condition for safe road use.
Items that are inspected at this time are:
- Wheels and tyres
- Steering, suspensions and braking systems
- Seats and seatbelts
- Lights and reflectors
- Windscreen, and windows including front wipers and washers
- Vehicle structure
- Other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.
If your vehicle passes inspection you will receive the required documentation “certificate of roadworthiness” to take to VicRoads.
If your vehicle fails, the initial inspection you have 7 days to have the necessary repairs carried out as well as to have a secondary inspection within this time.
If the secondary inspection does not happen within this time frame a new Vic roadworthy inspection is required.
A Certificate of Roadworthiness is current for 30 days from the date of issue.
The roadworthiness test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle. If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then you should please advise us before booking for a RWC check.
