Failed Inspection

If your caravan fails the Safety Certificate/ Roadworthy inspection do not stress. Queensland Transport allows you 14 days from the first inspection date to have the defects repaired. The inspector will give you the green fail slip of the Safety certificate/ Roadworthy as well as a list on what needs to be repaired. Once the repairs of the defects are completed call us and we will come and complete the second inspection, within the 14 day period. If the repairs are completed to the code of practice standard the Safety certificate will be issued.

It Passed

If you are selling your caravan the completed Safety Certificate blue card copy must be displayed in the draw bar or window if the caravan is registered at time of sale. If you are transferring registration from Queensland registration to a different name, you will need to complete a Transfer of Vehicle Registration Form. If the vehicle is unregistered or in another State registration, then you will need to complete a Vehicle Registration Form.

It is by law that if the caravan is registered and being sold, that the seller must supply a Safety Certificate/ Roadworthy. A Safety Certificate/ Roadworthys is valid for 2 months or 2000kms (whichever comes first) when selling a vehicle privately. If a dealer is selling a vehicle then the Safety Certificate/ Roadworthy is valid for 3 months or 1000kms (whichever comes first). If the vehicle is unregistered then the seller is not required to provide a Safety Certificate/ Roadworthy.
