What is a safety check?

Safety checks are basic mechanical checks, targeting certain vehicle components that may cause a risk to vehicle occupants and other road users if they are not operating correctly or are excessively worn.

After your vehicle has passed the safety check, the station sends a report to the RTA electronically.

Examiners will check the following vehicle components during a safety check:

  • Vehicle identification (AUVIS only)
  • Brakes
  • Steering and suspension
  • Wheels and tyres
  • Body condition
  • Seats and seat belts
  • Lights and headlight aim
  • Engine / drive line
  • Exhaust system
  • Towing attachment
  • LPG system (accredited examiners only)
  • Number plates (obscured, faded, unauthorised)
  • No dangerous protrusions fitted (brackets for spotlight, fishing rod holders etc).
