What is a certificate of inspection?

Can you sell your car without roadworthy in Queensland?

If you are selling a vehicle in Queensland then you are legally required to get a roadworthy certificate to show that the vehicle is not defective. If you are purchasing a vehicle from out of Queensland then you will also need to provide a roadworthy certificate when you register the vehicle.
