Certificate of Inspections for Booked Hire Vehicles

What is a Certificate of Inspection?

A Certificate of Inspection is an annual inspection for all booked hire registered vehicles in Queensland.

Typically booked hire vehicles include:

  • Rentals
  • Taxi’s
  • Limousines
  • Special Purpose Limousines
  • Uber, Ola etc
All COI inspections for booked hire vehicles are required to be issued through the ICO (Inspection Certificates Online) system. 

When do I need a COI?

Plenty of notice is given weeks before the inspection is due. 

For instance: A notice is sent from Queensland Transport and Main Roads every 12 months for all booked hire registered vehicles. 

It is a reminder to have the inspection prior to the date that the registration is due for payment.

Most importantly, your registration renewal cannot be paid if you do not have a valid COI.

In order to pass an inspection your vehicle will need to be roadworthy. 

The examiner at the AIS (Approved Inspection Station) must hold the correct accreditation to be able to complete the Certificate of Inspection for your vehicle.

What is checked for a COI?

A Certificate of Inspection is almost identical to a Safety Certificate. 

But the difference is how they are processed. 

To clarify, a Safety Certificate can be issued through the old paper system if required however a COI can only be issued online.

The brake testing equipment used will load the results onto the Certificate digitally.

In addition to the brake test the following items are checked during a COI Inspection.

  • 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
