    Hi All,

     

    I'm going to buy a car for my daughter but the car has no roadworthy certificate!!

     

    Is this a problem in south Australia as I've heard different stories?

     

    Can anyone please help?

     

    Thank you Derek

    Why would you need one! Not required unless you want car inspected!

     

    [h=3]Roadworthy inspections[/h] In South Australia, a roadworthy inspection is required when the vehicle:

     

    • has been fitted with a non standard engine
    • construction has been changed (e.g. change to length of wheelbase, change in number of tyres, or the vehicle has been converted from a sedan to a convertible)
    • is a bus with seating for 13 or more
    • has been issued with a major defect notice
    • has been imported from overseas
    • was originally manufactured as left hand drive
    • has been rebuilt from parts and is a hot rod, beach buggy, etc.
    • has been changed and the seating capacity is different
    • is new and is not fitted with a compliance plate or the compliance plate approval date has expired
    • is a repaired written-off vehicle
    • was registered in another state, is more than seven years old and has an unladen mass of 4.5 tonnes or more
    • trailers registered in another state, more than seven years old and having an unladen mass of 4.5 tonnes or more are also required to be roadworthy tested.

    Thanks to you both. Still confused. I will check it out at SA Driving Centre on Monday I think.

    no cars in SA need a roadworthy certificate unless it comes from interstate, or been modified. (In SA if your car has 4 round wheels then its roadworthy)

    This is pretty handy actually... I was considering buying one from Vic, but as it turns out there are plenty of what I'm after in SA :)
