About Licensed Vehicle Testing
Although vehicle owners are responsible for keeping their vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition at all times, roadworthiness testing is undertaken to help minimise the possible hazard to road users including buyers of used vehicles where the vehicle may be in a potentially harmful condition, often without the owner being aware of it.
A certificate of roadworthiness issued by a licensed tester is certification that a vehicle meets the roadworthy requirements and is fit for use on our roads.
Automotive business directors and their staff can undertake the accredited training to upskill as well as diversify their business’ income stream.
