Need a Certificate of Roadworthiness?  Call us to book in a Roadworthy Inspection.

As a licensed Vehicle Tester, Pablo's can perform Roadworthy Inspections and issue Certificates of Roadworthiness in line with the VicRoads Roadworthiness Requirements.

A Certificate of Roadworthiness is required when a registered motorcycle is sold (changes ownership) or if a used motorcycle is to be re-registered.  You may also need a Certificate of Roadworthiness to clear a Defect Notice or a Notice of Unroadworthiness.


When performing a Roadworthy Inspection we check your motorcycle to ensure key components are not worn or deteriorated and whether it is safe for normal road use. It is important to know that a Roadworthy Inspection is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the motorcycle.

A roadworthy inspection mainly covers the major safety related items, including:

  • exhaust noise
  • wheels & tyres
  • steering, suspension & braking systems
  • safety related items on body chassis or engine
  • lamps & reflectors
  • windscreen
  • structure of the motorcycle itself
  • seats

Certificate of Roadworthiness

If your motorcycle passes the Roadworthy Inspection we will issue you with a Certificate of Roadworthiness which is valid for 30 days from the date of issue.

If any key components do not meet the required standards we will advise you of the faults and an estimate of the cost for us to fix these to ensure the standards are met. Otherwise you have seven days to have the faults rectified and the motorcycle returned to us to reinspect for free.
