What happens if a vehicle fails a roadworthiness inspection?

If a car fails a roadworthy inspection, you will have seven days to fix any flaws or faults, or you will have to pay for another inspection before passing. Bliss Mechanics Services may either solve the faults for you or you can take the automobile to your preferred technician.

If you wish to pass a roadworthy examination, you need to know what factors the technician doing the vehicle inspection will evaluate when determining whether or not the vehicle is roadworthy.

LET’S GO OVER EVERY STEP WITH THIS QUICK CHECKLIST:

Braking systems and brakes

Brakes and warning systems are critical safety features on all cars, and they must function properly to pass a roadworthy inspection.

  • All brake components must work properly, be securely attached, and be in the proper location.
  • All components of the braking system must be free of obvious wear, deformation, or damage.
  • The parking and emergency brakes on the vehicle must work properly.
  • Park brakes must be adequate for holding the automobile motionless on any degree of elevation, up or down.
  • Brake lights (warning signals) must be properly installed and operational.
  • The car horn must be operational ( warning signs)
  • Leak-free brake systems are required.
  • The wear indications on brake linings must not be worn down.

Vehicle Chassis and Body

  • Any problem that might cause structural failure or otherwise jeopardize safe operation is absent.
  • A sound floor that is devoid of impediments and any other condition that might jeopardize the safe operation.
  • All lock systems are in good working order, including boot, door, lid (utes), hatch, bonnet, and tailgate latches.
  • Bumper bars that eliminate sharp edges or protrusions must be installed securely.
  • Towbars (if present) should be in good working order and properly installed.
  • Mudflaps that are appropriate for a tray body vehicle are required.

Tires and wheels

  • At each point on the tread reasonably expected to contact the road, tires must have a tread depth of 1.5mm (min) (other than attire tread indicators)
  • When tread wear indicators are present, tires cannot show enough wear for the indicators to make contact with the road surface.
  • The rims and tires must be the same size.
  • The retreader’s identification must be prominently marked on retreaded tires.
  • The phrase “retreaded” must be shown alongside necessary marks on retreaded tires, as required by Australian standards.
  • Wheels, rims, and tires must be free of cracks or other problems that might lead to tire, wheel, or rim failure.
  • The wheels and rims must not be out of balance, dented, or buckled in any way.
  • A “temporary use” spare tire cannot be used as a road wheel.
  • If you have spoke wheels, make sure they’re all straight, fitted, and tensioned properly.
  • The wheels and tires shall not extend beyond the width of the mudguards while facing straight ahead.
  • During any combination of steering or suspension operations, the tires and wheels must not make contact with any portion of the vehicle.
  • Wheels must have the right kind and quantity of studs, and nuts (or both, if necessary), and must be firmly fastened.
