For a thorough check you know you can trust, book your car in for a Vehicle Inspection at Highway Auto Car Servicing Rockhampton. All our inspections are carried out at our Qld Transport Licensed premises, DTMR approved inspection station, authority number 5875. This ensures a thorough examination, including brake pads and all safety items.

Safety certificates are required if you want to sell a car that is registered in Queensland.

It is confirmation that a vehicle meets minimum safety standards. These inspections are not required to identify all defects so vehicles can have a valid safety certificate but still have major mechanical issues.

Before you commit to purchasing a vehicle check that the certificate is valid and has enough time left on it to complete the registration transfer. You cannot transfer registration without one.

Our Pre-purchase inspection is a comprehensive inspection to safeguard you.
