Mobile HVRAS inspection across Brisbane and Gold Coast

Do you own a heavy vehicle or trailer and would like to register it in Queensland? You may need to have a HVRAS inspection completed before you are able to register your vehicle.

HVRAS is the Heavy Vehicle Registration Assessment Scheme implemented by the Queensland government to assist in the inspection of large vehicles. This assessment is separate to obtaining a safety certificate or Certificate of Inspection.

We can save you the inconvenience of taking your vehicle to a Transport and Main Roads office by completing a HVRAS inspection for you on site.

We’ll even bring all the required documentation you need! For an easy and hassle free HVRAS inspection in the Gold Coast, Brisbane or anywhere in between, contact us today.

All you need before you can get your number plates are the forms we provide for you and your completed application for registration form (which can be found here).

Benefits of mobile HVRAS inspections in the Gold Coast, Brisbane and anywhere in between

You can take your vehicle to a Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads Service Centre to complete your HVRAS. However, not all of these centres have qualified staff to complete this inspection. You might have to drive far to find one that can.

As you know, large vehicles can also be quite cumbersome to manoeuvre in built up areas and it can be quite difficult to find appropriate parking near the centre. If you have a busy work schedule, you may have to take extra time out of your work day to take the vehicle to an inspection centre.

You can avoid all these headaches and save time by letting our approved examiners come to your location, whether you’re at work or at home. If you’re based in the Gold Coast, Brisbane or anywhere in between, we can complete a HVRAS inspection for you on site. To save you the extra hassle, we can also complete checks for Roadworthy Certificates, Safety Certificates and Certificates of Inspection (COI) at the same time.
