You must have your motor vehicle tested for roadworthiness before you register it in your name. If your motor vehicle is used for public transport or is a heavy-load vehicle (excluding buses), you must take it to be tested for roadworthiness every year before you renew the motor vehicle licence. A bus must be tested for roadworthiness every six months.
It is your responsibility as the owner of a vehicle to have your vehicle tested. You can take it to a private or public vehicle testing station.
At the end of the roadworthy test, if passed, a notice is issued.
- Go to the nearest vehicle testing station with the following:
- vehicle’s registration certificate
- identity document (ID)
- prescribed fee.
- Complete the Application for certification of roadworthiness (ACR) form.
The application is processed on the same day.
Contact the relevant testing station.
Forms are obtainable at your nearest testing station.
