Buying and Selling Your Motorbike
If you are buying or selling your motorcycle, you will need a Roadworthy Certificate (RWC). A RWC is required to transfer or register a motorcycle into either your name or the person’s name who is purchasing your bike. It is an official certificate provided by a VIC Roads licensed tester stating that your motorcycle has met specific standards of safety and compliance set by relevant authorities.
The cost of the RWC is $125.
Please Note: a RWC is not a condition report or warranty certificate.
InTune Motorcycles Services is a
VicRoads accredited licensed tester.
When looking at purchasing a pre-owned motorbike, InTune recommends you ensure the vehicle has an up to date RWC.
RWC are only available from the 2500 Licensed Vehicle Testers across Victoria, which includes InTune Motorcycle Services. For the purpose of a transaction, the RWC is current for a 30 day period from the date of issue. What is important to remember is that a RWC is issued from an inspection or testing which mainly covers major safety related items and is not a check of the overall mechanical reliability or general condition of the motorbike.
A Roadworthy Certificate in not:
- A guarantee that the vehicle is in top condition without any wear or deterioration.
- A check of the operation of non-safety related accessories.
- A guarantee that the items checked during the roadworthy inspection will continue to function after the inspection e.g. a brake light can stop functioning at any time after the inspection.
We highly recommend that if you are planning to sell a motorcycle, you should provide a RWC in order to make it easier to sell your motorcycle. We conduct our testing on premises at InTune Motorcycles. We perform our Roadworthy inspections in a fair and transparent manner in compliance with all relevant authorities. If you have an appointment, we are able to complete your Roadworthy Testing while you wait.
The Roadworthy Testing is a check of the motorbike to ensure that the key components are in a fit condition for safe road use. It includes:
- wheels and tyres
- steering, suspensions and braking systems
- lights and reflectors
- vehicle structure
- other safety related items on the body, chassis or engine.
