Get Your Motorcycle Roadworthy-Ready!

If your Motorcycle is in a sound to excellent condition; well taken care of and you need to make sure that everything will pass the test e.g. pad wear; tyre condition; exhaust emission etc. the condition report can be done at under $110 (gst is included).

With a scheduled booking, and you turn up on time, we can do the test while you wait; if you don’t mind waiting for approx. an hour (depending on the condition of your motorcycle).

If you would like us to transport the motorcycle to an approved RWC centre and handle all aspects of getting the Roadworthy Certificate on your behalf, we can look after the whole process on your behalf – the quote will depend on the condition of your motorcycle BEFORE it is taken to the Licensed RWC centre.

Some basic items to check before bringing your bike in for a Roadworthy Test
this will save you, your own valuable time:


Tyres must have over 1.5mm of tread at the lowest point on the tyre – no cracks in the rubber.

Oil leaks

There can be no oil leaks that drip onto the ground

Number plate light globe

Must be white and clearly illuminate the number plate


All bearings must be in good working condition with smooth operation – no binding or notchy-ness at all


All motorbikes must have a properly working horn


Indicators must flash yellow and between 60-120 times per minute


Headlight, stop tail and dash lights must be correctly operative.

Chain & sprockets

Chain & sprockets must be in good working condition and not excessively worn

Fender eliminators

Most fender eliminators do not pass roadworthy, but in most cases we have a low cost solution to re-fitting the original fender. The rear fender must have a reflector.

Brake pads & discs

Your brake pads must be over 1mm thickness and your brake discs cannot be worn past the limit specified on the disc

Fork seals

There can be no oil leaking from your fork seals

Aftermarket exhausts

Motorcycles manufactured after 1984 must have exhausts that read 94db or lower to pass roadworthy. Most aftermarket exhausts exceed this but we can sometimes provide a solution if you do not have the OEM exhaust

The above are only some of the criteria that a motorcycle has to satisfy to successfully obtain a Roadworthy Certificate (RWC). There are many more checks conducted during a Roadworthy Test by our licensed testers and examiners.
