A Safety Certificate Inspection covers the basics that could affect the safe operation of the vehicle.
- Seats & Restraints
- Lights & Electrical Components
- Windscreen & Windows
- Body & Chassis
- Steering & Suspension
- Wheels & Tyres
- Brake Components
- Engines & Drivelines
- Exhaust Emissions
- Road Test
- Service Brake Test

If the vehicle 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.
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 vehicle such as the windscreen or side window.
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.
What do I need to do if my car is unregistered?
- You need at least Compulsory Third Party Insurance on the vehicle
- A copy of the Department of Transport’s New Registration Application Form signed by the owner
New Registration Application (F3520) Forms can be downloaded from Queensland Transport’s website.
