You’ve picked your favourite car and now you found the perfect used one to buy. It has all the details you want in your vehicle, from the red painting to the wide windows and the stylish hub caps. Being already used comes with a lower price tag, so you are also covered financially. But there is only one thing which it doesn’t have: a roadworthy certificate.
Certify the car’s functionality
According to the government, your car needs to comply with certain physical standards regarding tires, steering, brakes and so on, all of which are being checked at a mobile roadworthy inspection. The inspection is easy to make at an authorised service centre, which can inspect the car and repair it if there is something wrong with it.
Something to hide under the hood
If the car owner refuses to undergo mobile servicing inspection, it usually means he wants to hide something from you. In most cases, this is a severe problem which is very expensive to solve. This problem can range from something which can jeopardise your life while driving to other less dangerous issues which are highly expensive to repair.
Paying for a roadworthy inspection is always cheaper than paying with your health or life, which is a major benefit of having a worthiness certificate. And here are more benefits of this procedure.
Easier ownership transfer
When you buy a car you want to transfer it on your name as soon as possible. Having a worthiness certificate speeds up the process. Moreover, without one, you can’t register the car, so you can’t transfer your ownership, which will lead to lots of frustration and headaches.
The roadworthy certificate is required to register the car in order to drive it on the road. Without a certificate you can’t register the car and you won’t be able to drive it. At least not legally, as the government prohibits the use of unregistered cars. If you cross the law you can get into severe troubles with the police, which are not worthy.
Safety comes first
The roadworthy inspection is not a complete inspection of your car, which can find all the major problems with it; it is more of a safety net for you and the other drivers on the road. A roadworthy check includes all the elements which might turn your car into a dangerous weapon. For example, lacking a break can end up really bad for everyone on the road at the moment. This is exactly what the roadworthy inspection is trying to avoid, so have your car checked as soon as possible.
