When do I need a Safety Certificate?

If you are selling a registered vehicle, you will need to obtain and display a Queensland safety certificate from the moment you offer the vehicle for sale. The safety certificate must be displayed on a conspicuous part of the vehicle.

If you fail to display a Queensland safety certificate on the vehicle from the moment you offer it for sale you are subject to receiving an on-the-spot fine of $500.

When can a vehicle be sold without a Safety Certificate?

The only time vehicles offered for sale do not require a certificate is when they are unregistered or when they are traded to, or between, licensed motor dealers. Vehicles can still be sold for parts or restoration, but they must be de-registered before being offered for sale.

How long do they last?
  • Safety Certificates for private sellers remain valid for 2 months or 2,000 km (whichever comes first).
  • Motor Dealers Safety Certificates are valid for 3 months or 1,000 km (whichever comes first).
What happens if my vehicle fails the Safety Inspection?

If your vehicle fails the Inspection, you have 14 days to rectify any problems and re-present the vehicle for a second inspection. As long as it is inspected within the 14 days, there is no extra charge.
