All ASAP Safety Certificates are issued via ICO and will be received in a email PDF format. This also means QLD Transport instantly have access to it on their system when required.
If your vehicle is deemed un-roadworthy by an inspector and fails the first inspection, you will be issued a repair notice which will grant you 14 days from the date of the first inspection to complete any necessary repairs.

You will not be charged the full inspection price again! Only a small mobile call out fee of up to $49 will be payable upon the second inspection, depending on your location.

If the necessary repair takes longer than expected, taking the re-inspection of your vehicle over the 14-day deadline, please contact us to arrange a new certificate booking.

The Safety Certificates we issue can be used for new registration, late registration renewal or registration transfer purposes in the State of Queensland.

If you are unable to make it to the Inspection appointment, just remember that we can also do the Inspection at your work on the Gold Coast Brisbane & Ipswich Areas.

We often do inspections unattended so you may also leave the keys at a disclosed location to allow us access to the vehicle and complete the payment beforehand over the phone.

In the case of a Pre-purchase Inspection, it is common not to be there however we would require you to get in touch with the seller before you book your appointment to advise them of the booking.

We require the sellers contact details to confirm booking availability directly with them also if you prefer, we can arrange suitable time with them to save you the hassle of being the middle man.
An RWC is NOT required in the following scenarios:

    There are certain guidelines between which vehicles can be modified for road use. Some minor modifications do not require additional certification to be deemed road legal, whilst others require a QLD modification plate to be attached to the vehicle along with the certification of modifications.

    A modification plate and its certification can only be issued by a licensed person. For list of modification and additional information on modification plates click on the following link.

    QLD Code of practice: Vehicle modifications
    Yes that’s fine. The vehicle is required to be taken for a road test, but don’t worry, we carry a trade plate which enables us to road-test a vehicle safely and legally.
    If your vehicle does not meet the minimum safety requirement set by transport and main roads YES you are still required to pay for the the Safety Certificate inspection fee.

    However you have 14 days to attend to the noted items and do not have to pay for the Safety Certificate. However, a small call out fee for the sign off does apply subject to location.

    We follow strict guidelines set by the Department of transport & main roads Code of practice.

    Couldn't be happier with the service I received. I managed to get a same-day pre-purchase inspection AND roadworthy done, was completed in a matter of hours and a full-length report promptly emailed... to me. Definitely worth the investment, helped me to get a much fairer deal on my new car thanks to Isaac and the team. Awesome work!read more
