The Garage Miami is an Approved Inspection Station and can perform Queensland Safety Certificates (Roadworthy Certificates / RWC’s) for the purpose of vehicle registrations for QLD Registered Light vehicles (GVM less than 4.5 Tonne).

Our certificates are now electronically linked to your vehicle and are valid for a period of 2 months or 2,000km (whichever comes first) from the date of issue.

According to the QLD Department of Transport and Main Roads:

“You can use the same safety certificate to register an unregistered vehicle and then transfer the registration, as long as you do this within the limits set out previously.
You will need to get a new safety certificate every time you sell a vehicle, even if you sell it within the limits set out previously. A single safety certificate can be used for 1 transfer only.”

What’s more is The Garage Miami is ready to assist. No waiting around for hours for a mobile safety certificate The Garage Miami is handy to Broadbeach Waters, Burleigh Waters and Mermaid Waters.

Note the Garage Miami only performs Safety Certificates for Light Vehicles in specific cars and light trucks. We do not inspect motorcycles or any other types of vehicles. We cannot perform E-Safety Certificates for NSW Vehicles.

Pre Purchase Inspections

Why perform a pre purchase inspection?

By having The Garage Miami perform a pre purchase inspection our customers receive peace of mind in buying a new vehicle. Knowing the exact condition of a vehicle you are purchasing can also serve as a great negotiating tool with the seller.

Our fully qualified and approved technicians have experience in all makes and models including Mercedes Benz, Audi, BMW, Peugeot and Renault.

The examiners usually have seen the same vehicle you are buying in almost every condition and can provide a fair, educated, experienced opinion if the wear on the vehicle is standard for the age and mileage of the vehicle.

We will provide you with a completed inspection report.

Our technicians will inspect and report on your vehicle's critical systems using the widely accepted traffic light method to assist you in prioritising any repairs:

Pass Traffic Light Monitor/Amber Traffic Light Immediate Repair Traffic Light
  • Green = Pass
  • Amber = Monitor
  • Red = Immediate Repair
