Book a vehicle inspection
Before booking an inspection, you must decide what type of inspection is needed. This depends on:
- your vehicle type
- the purpose for which it is used.
Most light vehicles only need a safety certificate. Safety certificates are only issued by approved inspection stations.
Passenger transport service vehicles, heavy vehicles and some minibuses need a certificate of inspection. Check your vehicle type to find out if this can be issued by an approved inspection station or by a Transport and Main Roads vehicle inspection centre.
Approved inspection stations
To book a vehicle inspection with an approved inspection station in your area, you can:
