Roadworthy Certificates (RWC)

A Roadworthy Certificate (QLD) is a safety inspection of your vehicle that is mandatory for cars, trucks, vans and all light vehicles when selling a registered motor vehicle or registering in Queensland if the vehicle has previously been registered inter-state. It is your responsibility to ensure your vehicle is in roadworthy and safe condition at all times. In Queensland, these certificates are known as Roadworthy certificates. It is not to be confused with the term Pink Slip in New South Wales – they are the same thing.

If you are in need of a roadworthy certificate for your vehicle, then contact Motor Hospital in Kelvin Grove, Brisbane. Here at Motor Hospital, we specialise in roadworthy checks and certificates.

I have never experienced such a slick automotive mechanic service like Motor Hospital. It is a family owned business which is obvious as soon as you walk through the door. The hard working wife/husband management team treat their staff just like family, and they like to extend this vibe to their tribe of loyal customers.

I love the guys at Motor Hospital. They always go the extra mile. Have never found fault with their work and always feel safer and confident when driving because I know they are thorough. Took my car in recently before a Sydney trip and asked them to make sure it was safe for the drive. Always go to them for services and other work. Friendly, lovely people - totally recommend them.

Took my car in for service to Motor Hospital after a recommendation from a friend. The engine light was on. I went to my regular mechanic first and he said that my car would need a new ECU costing thousands of dollars. I asked a friend of mine to help me make a decision and she said to take it to Cory at the Motor Hospital to get another opinion. I am really glad that I did. My car feels amazing, the light is not on and I got a really great deal on a service too. Highly recommend this garage and they have a beautiful office dog that kept me company too! Thanks guys you're the best!
