Highly recommended, I contacted Aaron on a weekend to get an urgent roadworthy done on the following Monday miles away from his normal area of work. No problem at all for Aaron and his team, they turned up when they said they would and conducted the RWC on time. I would recommend them every time.

I didn't know I would need a roadworthy certificate for an almost new car that I was giving to my son. Apparently this is because he doesn't live at my address. Thank goodness for Aaron at Underwood branch. One call to him this morning and he came to my house today. Forty minutes later after a thorough inspection I had the necessary document to transfer my car to my son. A total gentleman and the job was done for under $100. Thank you so much Aaron. Highly recommended.

Dr Roadworthy helped me out last week with a roadworthy certificate for my car.

It was super convenient as he came to me, on time and punctual.

Aaron really knew what he was doing, we tested my battery and charging system and was able to advise me a new battery was needed. He even had some wiper blades on hand as mine were stuffed.

I highly recommend.

Thanks for all the help.

No, unregistered cars cannot be driven unless you have an unregistered vehicle permit from Qld Transport. Make sure you take all expired number pates off the car or you could be dealt a hefty fine from the Police.

How do police know if your car is unregistered?

Great question, the Police can detect if your car is unregistered in several ways. The specialised Highway Patrol cars are fitted with number plate recognition cameras and instantly know if you are unregistered. They also can match if the type of car and colour of car or trailer is correct. General Patrol Cars may decide to check your rego status manually on their iPads or by radioing the despatch centre. Gone are the days of rego stickers and just remember these stickers are now an offence if you have not removed these from the vehicle, it's more than $500 so don't forget old rego stickers can be costly. We would inform you at time of inspection if you have a rego sticker on the vehicle.

In the past it was a definite that you needed a spare tyre for a roadworthy. But now some brand new cars do not even have a space saver rim in the boot. These new cars have a pump and a special glue that you repair your flat or damaged tyre and then continue driving. We do recommend you have a spare tyre in the vehicle for your safety.

To pass a roadworthy you should check these items:

*Lights - headlights, indicators, brake lights and number plate lights are working, no white light emits from rear of vehicle and the headlights aren't a discoloured yellowish colour.

*Brakes - minimum 1.5mm of brake pad material, rotors are within specification, the car passes a brake meter test..

How long does a motorcycle roadworthy last?

Motorcycles are the same as other vehicles, once the certificate has been issued you have 8 weeks from date of issue or subsequently if the car/bike has travelled under 2000klm, you are still in the time frame to submit your certificate to Main Roads.If you go past either of these requirements the car/bike will need to be reinspected and a new certificate issued.
