RWC & Gas Certificates

Roadworthy Certificates (RWC)

If your caravan isnt Road Worthy under the Queensland Governments Department of Transport, that means your caravan or motorhome, isn’t drivable on Australian roads.
If you are registering your vehicle from another state, transferring ownership, or re registering an unregistered vehicle, you will need to get your vehicle inspected and obtain a RWC. This includes caravans with an aggregate trailer mass (ATM) between 750kg and 3,500kg. 
For HVRAS information see the Heavy Vehicle Registration Assessment Scheme at the bottom of this page. 

  • Tyres / Wheels
  • Brakes
  • Identification / Vin Plate
  • Suspension
  • Body Rust Or Damage
  • Modifications
  • Tow Hitch / Coupling
  • Lights / Electrics

The team at Caravan Repair Centre is trained and authorised to issue your next Caravan Road Worthy Certificate.

All you need to do is book in, and we take care of the rest from there. Once we perform the inspection, and your vehicle passes, you just need to take the paperwork to Queensland Transport for final approval.

Heavy Vehicle Registration Assessment Scheme

A person can apply for accreditation to inspect and measure vehicles of more than 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM), and trailers of more than 750kg aggregate trailer mass (ATM) prior to registration under the Heavy Vehicle Registration Assessment Scheme (HVRAS).

The objective of the scheme is to provide people with accreditation to inspect heavy vehicles and trailers to ensure they comply with:

  • dimensional limitations
  • approved load sharing axle systems guidelines
  • safe tyre limits
  • vehicle identifiers (for example: engine number, vehicle identification number and chassis number).

Imported vehicles that have not been previously registered in Australia cannot be inspected and measured by HVRAS accredited persons. These imported vehicles must be sighted by the Department of Transport and Main Roads for verification with the vehicle import documents.

Gas Certificates

In addition to a RWC, some caravans will require a gas certificate. If your caravan has a permanently fixed gas supply, like from a fridge, cooktop or hot water system, you will need to obtain a gas certificate. Caravan Repair Centre is able to conduct any inspections, and supply you with your gas certificates. When you have any gas system installed, you should be supplied with a vehicle inspection certificate, that certifies that the installation complies with all of the relevant legislation and meets all safety requirements. When you have an installation or conversion completed by us, we will supply you with this certificate, as well as the relevant plates to certify the safety of the systems in your vehicle.

Caravan Repair Centre is a Queensland Approved Transport Inspection Station. You can trust us to service your caravan and ensure the safety of you and your vehicle.
