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]

In Tasmania a Roadworthy is not a legal requirement for your vehicle, however they do have the formal vehicle inspection in place. So what does this mean? The Tasmanian government have brought a Defective Vehicle and Random Vehicle Inspection scheme. The Defective Vehicle call-in means that you are issued with a Defective vehicle notice, by the police if they observe your vehicle for a period of time and deem it un-roadworthy, or if a member of the public have made a complaint against your vehicle.[More]
