VicRoads has given the Roadworthy certificate a modern make over and introduced the Roadworthy eCertificate (eRWC). Ironically the ‘green slip’ is now white but uses a ‘greener’ process.
Under this new system, when a roadworthy test is undertaken by a registered provider, VicRoads will automatically email a copy of all completed reports and an eRWC to the email address of the vehicle presenter.
The vehicle presenter will receive:
• the first test report and the second test report (if a second test was needed)
• the Roadworthy eCertificate.
The key benefit of the Roadworthy eCertificate system is that it automatically provides VicRoads with information on every eRWC issued. Conveniently, you can also email on a copy of the Roadworthy eCertificate to a third party, which can make applying for Historic/Club Permit Registration easier or selling or buying a vehicle more straightforward.
Please note the same conditions apply to the new Roadworthy eCertificate as the paper based version. The eCertificate is still only valid for 14 days. After 14 days VicRoads will automatically cancel the Roadworthy eCertificate and you will need to start the process again, and pay for a second Roadworthy eCertificate!
