J&P Anton Motors is a VicRoads Licensed Vehicle Tester, licensed to offer roadworthy checks on light vehicles including passenger cars, vans, 4WDs, including LPG vehicles.


A roadworthy inspection is a check of the vehicle to ensure that key components have not worn or deteriorated and that the vehicle is safe for normal road use. It is generally required when a vehicle is sold or re-registered.


A roadworthy inspection mainly covers the major safety related items, including:


  • Wheels and tyres

  • Steering, suspension and braking systems

  • Seats and seat belts

  • Lamps and reflectors

  • Windscreen, and windows including front windscreen wipers and washers

  • The structure of the vehicle itself

  • Other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine


The roadworthiness test is not a check of the mechanical reliability or general condition of the vehicle. If you require a comprehensive check on the overall condition and reliability of the vehicle then you should arrange for a separate report - ask us for details.


The certificate does not mean:


  • That the vehicle is in top condition without any wear or deterioration

  • Non-safety related accessories such as the air conditioner, rear window demister, electric windows and rear-window wipers are working

  • That the items checked during the roadworthy inspection will continue to function after the inspection eg. a brake light can stop functioning at any time after the inspection
