Roadworthy Certificates

Motorcycle Roadworthy ($50 Second Inspection Fee)

Sixty Degrees Motorcycles is a licensed VicRoads Roadworthy RWC testing site at Notting Hill. Some of the areas we service are Clayton, Chadstone, Mount Waverley, Glen Waverley, Oakleigh, Springvale, Burwood and all East and South Eastern Melbourne suburbs.

We offer RWC Roadworthy inspections every day that we are open, however we no longer offer a while-you-wait service.  Instead we offer a same-day service.  Drop your bike off between 9 and 10am and we’ll have it ready in  the afternoon at approximately 4.30 – 5.00pm

Our Roadworthy Examinations are conducted in a fair and reasonable manner.  If your bike passes the first time, it passes – simple.  We don’t ‘find’ things wrong with your bike, just to get some extra money out of our customers.  If any items are found in your RWC inspection, we are more than happy to show you what the issue is and what needs to be done to pass the RWC.

*Please Note: Should your bike not pass the first inspection, you have 14 days to rectify any issues and present the bike for a 2nd inspection.  There is a $50 charge for a 2nd Inspection if conducted within the 14-day time limit.

Some basic items to check before bringing your bike in for a Roadworthy Test
this will save you, your own valuable time:


Tyres must have over 1.5mm of tread at the lowest point on the tyre – no cracks in the rubber.

Oil leaks

There can be no oil leaks that drip onto the ground

Number plate light globe

Must be white and clearly illuminate the number plate


All bearings must be in good working condition with smooth operation – no binding or notchy-ness at all


All motorbikes must have a properly working horn


Indicators must flash yellow and between 60-120 times per minute


Headlight, stop tail and dash lights must be correctly operative.

Chain & sprockets

Chain & sprockets must be in good working condition and not excessively worn

Fender eliminators

Most fender eliminators do not pass roadworthy, but in most cases we have a low cost solution to re-fitting the original fender. The rear fender must have a reflector.

Brake pads & discs

Your brake pads must be over 1mm thickness and your brake discs cannot be worn past the limit specified on the disc

Fork seals

There can be no oil leaking from your fork seals

Aftermarket exhausts

Motorcycles manufactured after 1984 must have exhausts that read 94db or lower to pass roadworthy. Most aftermarket exhausts exceed this but we can sometimes provide a solution if you do not have the OEM exhaust

The above are only some of the criteria that a motorcycle has to satisfy to successfully obtain a Roadworthy Certificate (RWC). There are many more checks conducted during a Roadworthy Test by our licensed testers and examiners.
