Vehicle Inspection Manuals

The vehicle inspection manuals are used by approved inspection stations when inspecting motor vehicles for the purposes of issuing a certificate of inspection or safety certificate. The manuals are also used by transport inspectors and police officers when determining if a vehicle is defective. 

The current versions of the manuals for light and heavy vehicles that are used in Queensland are available below:

Light vehicles

The Queensland Light Vehicle Inspection Manual provides the industry with consistent criteria for light vehicle (up to 4.5 t GVM) inspections.
