Tasmanian roadworthy inspections also known as vehicle inspections or roadworthiness assessments, are essential processes designed to ensure that vehicles on Tasmanian roads meet specific safety and compliance standards. These inspections play a critical role in maintaining road safety, protecting the environment, and ensuring the well-being of all road users. In this guide, we'll explain what Tasmanian roadworthy inspections entail and when they are needed.

What is a Tasmanian Roadworthy Inspection?

A Tasmanian roadworthy inspection is a comprehensive examination of a vehicle's key components and systems to assess its overall roadworthiness. The inspection is carried out by qualified inspectors who follow strict government guidelines and regulations. The goal is to identify any defects, wear and tear, or modifications that may compromise the safety, performance, or environmental compliance of the vehicle.

When is a Tasmanian Roadworthy Inspection Needed?

Vehicle Transfer from interstate

One of the most common instances when a roadworthy inspection is required is during the  transfer of a vehicle registered in another state when you buy a vehicle interstate or move to Tasmania, it must undergo a roadworthy inspection to ensure it meets safety and compliance standards and to be Registered in Tasmania.


New Vehicle Registration 

In some cases, even new vehicles may require a roadworthy inspection before they can be registered for the first time. This inspection is typically conducted when the vehicle has not been registered by your new car dealer or if you purchase your new car interstate and not from a dealer in Tasmania.


Modifications and Alterations

If you make significant modifications or alterations to your vehicle, such as adding aftermarket parts or making structural changes, a roadworthy inspection may be necessary to ensure that the modifications comply with safety and environmental standards.

Random Inspections

Tasmanian authorities may conduct random call in inspections to ensure that vehicles on the road meet safety and compliance standards. If your vehicle is selected for such an inspection, you must comply.

Vehicle registration expired over 3 months ago

If your vehicle has been unregistered in Tasmania for longer than 3 months it will require a pre registration inspection before you can re register it
