Roadworthy Dandenong Inspections are very important if you are willing to sell your vehicle. A buyer would check the roadworthy certificate before finalizing the deal. A roadworthy certificate is important because it gives the assurance to the buyer that the vehicle is safe to be driven around. Any registered vehicle must be inspected by a registered and licensed mechanic for its roadworthiness. During a roadworthy inspection, the licensed and authorized mechanic will check all the important parts of your vehicle and ensure that the vehicle is fully functional and approves to the road safety norms.

The parts checked during a roadworthy Dandenong inspection include:

  • Tyres
  • Lights
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Structure
  • Engine
  • Miscellaneous such as horns, seatbelts, door latches, windscreen, dashboard and lighting, brakes wares, suspension and more.

What happens when you have a problem with a roadworthy?

There are cases when a roadworthy inspection may go wrong. As a common instance, it happens when the vehicle owner finds out that the vehicle is not roadworthy and the vehicle isn’t roadworthy. In such a case, you first need to check whether the item in question is covered under the roadworthy check or not. You can approach the VicRoads office to get a copy of roadworthiness requirements and check.

In case you find out that the item in question is covered under the roadworthiness items, you must contact a licensed vehicle tester preferably the one who offered you the roadworthy certification at the first place. You can explain your concerns to the inspector and get the case resolved. To contact the licensed roadworthy certificate issuer, you can check the details written on the certificate.

What if the issue is not resolved with the issuing tester?

In case the licensed tester who gave you the certificate is not able to resolve the matter, you will have to reach out to another licensed tester and reapply for inspection to get a proof to support your claim. Once the second tester gives you a copy of the inspection, you must present it to the original licensed vehicle tester and get the issue resolved.

Where should I go in case there is no support from the original tester?

If the claim from the second licensed vehicle tester supports your claim and yet the original licensed vehicle tester refuses to entertain your claim, you must reach out to VicRoads.

VicRoads will help you in finding out the right way to get the issue resolved. Please note that VicRoads does not have the authority to insist on the original licensed vehicle tester to provide a clearance to your issue or provide you with compensation. For this, you will have to reach out to civil action (VCAT) for the resolution of the matter.
