In Queensland the laws are very strict about Safety Certificates (roadworthy) on vehicles that are up for sale, or that are being re-registered for the first time or from interstate.In Queensland if you are planning on selling your vehicle you need to display a safety certificate on a clearly visible part of the vehicle, from the moment it goes on sale, either on the internet, in the paper, in your front yard or if you’re driving it around with a “For Sale” sign, it must display the safety certificate.If you have a vehicle registered in another state or that has been un-registered for more than 3 months or are registering the vehicle for the first time they will all need to pass a safety inspection and receive a safety certificate before they can be registered.[More]

How much does a Queensland Safety certificate cost?

A safety certificate lasts for 2 months or 2000km if it is for private sale re-registration, or 3 months or 1000k if it is being sold by a licensed dealership. The safety certificate is for only 1 sale or re-registration. Even if you decide to sell the vehicle a week after you purchase it, and the safety certificate is still valid, you will need to pass another safety inspection and receive a new safety certificate. If you fail your first safety inspection you have 14 days to repair the defects and return it to your safety inspection centre for re-inspection at no extra charge.[More]
