Don’t get caught out: why roadworthy inspections matter

We all know how important it is to keep our vehicles running smoothly and safely on the road. One crucial aspect of this is ensuring that our vehicles are roadworthy. But what does that really mean, and why does it matter?

The importance of roadworthy inspections

Roadworthy inspections are about making sure that your vehicle is safe and legal to drive. These inspections are essential to keep you and others on the road out of harm’s way. In Queensland, roadworthy inspections are more than just a routine check — they are a legal requirement if you’re selling a vehicle or transferring its registration. But even if you’re not doing either, getting your vehicle checked regularly is still a smart move.

What key areas are assessed during a roadworthy inspection?

Roadworthy inspections are not just about the engine. Roadworthy inspections look at various aspects of your vehicle to ensure its overall safety and functionality. Here are some key areas that inspectors pay close attention to:


Ensuring your brakes work properly is crucial for your safety. Inspectors check brake pads, brake fluid, and the overall braking system.

Suspension and steering

A well-functioning suspension and steering system keep your vehicle stable and responsive. This includes checking shock absorbers, struts, and steering components.


Worn-out or damaged tyres can be a hazard on the road. Inspectors look for proper tread depth, condition and inflation.

Lights and electrical systems

Properly functioning lights and indicators are essential for visibility and communication. Inspectors check headlights, taillights, indicators, and other electrical components.

Body and chassis

The vehicle’s structural integrity is inspected to ensure it can withstand the rigors of the road.

Exhaust system

A well-maintained exhaust system helps control emissions and noise. Inspectors examine the exhaust system for leaks and proper function.
