Our Commitment to Vehicle Safety

Vehicle Inspections Tasmania is a licensed passenger vehicle inspection facility, committed to vehicle safety.

By being solely a vehicle inspection company, it therefore eliminates the necessity to specify unnecessary work on vehicles. We have two of the most technically advanced portable brake and suspension testing units in Australia. Therefore brake testing and bus roadworthy tests are able to be conducted at members depots throughout Tasmania, providing appropriate facilities are available.

Requirements for Inspections

  • ALL VEHICLE DRIVERS must bring a COMPLETED ENTRY POLICY with them to the inspection.
  • For NEW TASMANIAN REGISTRATIONS the vehicle driver must know the location of the VIN number stamped onto the Chassis of the vehicle and the ENGINE Number from the Engine.
  • If the vehicle is a public PASSENGER VEHICLE the vehicle driver must bring the PASSENGER VEHICLE ACCREDITATION CERTIFICATE with them
