Caravan Roadworthy Checks
A Safety Certificate Inspection covers the basics that could affect the safe operation of the vehicle.
- Lights & Electrical Components
- Body & Chassis
- Wheels & Tyres
- Tow Couplings
If the caravan complies in all of these areas in accordance to the Code of Practice then the Safety Certificate is issued on the spot.
What happens if I have a defect and it doesn't pass on the first inspection?
Queensland Transport allows you 14 days from the first inspection date to have the defects repaired.
Once the repairs are completed, call us and we will come and complete the second inspection.
If the repairs are completed to the Code of Practice then the Safety Certificate will be issued.
When do I require a Gas Certificate?
If the caravan has gas appliances, fittings or systems the caravan may require a gas certificate. This certificate needs to be issued by an authorised gas installer.
Displaying your Safety Certificate
It is very important that you have your completed Safety Certificate Blue Label card displayed in an obvious place on the caravan such as the drawbar or windows.
This must be displayed if you have “For Sale”, “Interested” or “Like this” on your vehicle. Failing to do this could result in a $550 on the spot fine from the Police or Queensland Transport.
