WHEN TO GET A MOTORCYCLE SAFETY CERTIFICATE?
If you are selling or transferring a registered motorcycle that does not yet have a safety certificate, you will need a roadworthy certificate (RWC) to complete a transfer ownership through the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads.
If your motorcycle does not pass the safety certificate inspection, the Department of Transport will not be able to grant you a transfer of title for that vehicle and the car may become deregistered. A safety certificate is also required to re-register vehicles when registration expires.
It is recommended to get a motorcycle safety certificate when:
- You are selling your motorcycle
- You are transferring your motorcycle to a new owner
- You would like to have peace of mind knowing the motorcycle you own is safe and passes the required standards to be deemed safe for the road
HOW LONG ARE MOTORCYCLE SAFETY CERTIFICATES VALID FOR?
The validity of safety certifications will be determined based on the individual who is selling the motorcycle.
- Licensed motorcycle dealers: certificates are valid for 3 months or 1000km (whichever comes first) from date of issue
- Private sellers: certificates are valid for 2 months or 2000km (whichever comes first) from date of issue
Note: You will be required to get a new motorcycle roadworthy if you go outside of the above parameters. You will also need a new safety certificate each time you want to transfer ownership regardless of the time period or kms travelled in between that time period of transfer.
GET YOUR MOTORCYCLE READY PRIOR TO INSPECTION
It is highly recommended to get your motorcycle to the safest possible standards prior to getting the safety certificate inspection done. If you fail your inspection it can be time consuming and highly inconvenient to then organise to get the motorcycle to a passable standard.
Approved inspection stations use motorcycle inspection manuals when inspecting motorcycles for the purposes of issuing a safety certificate. The manuals are also used by transport inspectors and police officers when determining if a vehicle is defective. You can view the current versions of the manuals for motorcycles that are used in Queensland.
Use this as a guide to know what areas of the motorcycle will be inspected and take it upon yourself to ensure that you observe these areas of the motorcycle prior to getting the inspection.
DOES EVERY MOTORCYCLE HAVE TO HAVE A SAFETY CERTIFICATE?
Regardless of motorcycle type, style, age of condition, safety is the most important element when it comes to riding a motorcycle on the road. Not every motorcycle has to have a safety certificate as there are specific instances where a safety certificate isn’t required. Here are a list of these instances:
- The motorcycle is unregistered
- The motorcycle is traded into a motorcycle dealer that is licensed
- The motorcycle is traded between licensed motorcycle dealers
A safety certificate is different from a pre-purchase inspection. A safety certificate is a basic check according to the code of practice, where a pre-purchase inspection serves as the mechanical reliability or condition of the vehicle.
