A Safety Certificate Inspection covers the basics that could affect the safe operation of the vehicle.

 

  • Identification
  • Modifications
  • Seats & Restraints
  • Lights & Electrical Components
  • Windscreen & Windows
  • Body & Chassis
  • Steering & Suspension
  • Wheels & Tyres
  • Brake Components
  • Engines & Drivelines
  • Exhaust Emissions
  • Road Test
  • Service Brake Test
  • Hand 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.

Testimonials

"To the Wonderful Staff at M1. I would like to sincerely Thank Mark Reeves, from the M1 Safety Check team at Arundal QLD. The service I received today, when I took my car there for a safety check, was amazing. Not only was Mark, courteous,efficient and thorough, he explained what I needed to do to register my car, gave me a stool to sit on while I waited,removed my old plates, AND drove me to the Dept of transport to complete my registration, and picked me up when I was finished, and attached my plates for me. The service I received was above and beyond my expectations. I am happy to say that i will be recommending your business to others, when in need of exceptional car servicing. Thank you again. I am one extremely happy customer. Wendy Toms"
