Roadworthy certificate

About a roadworthy certificate

You must have your motor vehicle tested for roadworthiness before you register it in your name. If your motor vehicle is used for public transport or is a heavy-load vehicle (excluding buses), you must take it to be tested for roadworthiness every year before you renew the motor vehicle licence. A bus must be tested for roadworthiness every six months.

It is your responsibility as the owner of a vehicle to have your vehicle tested. You can take it to a private or public vehicle testing station.

At the end of the roadworthy test, if passed, a notice is issued.
