Vehicle checks by qualified mechanics

​​RACT members save 10% on a full mechanical inspection.

Our expert team of qualified mechanics specialise in testing vehicles and giving a complete and unbiased report on their condition.

​​Saving you money

When purchasing a new vehicle, knowing what repairs are necessary enables you to negotiate with the seller for a better deal.

RACT specialised inspections can be arranged to suit your specific needs. We can undertake a basic maintenance road test, a full mechanical check and/or warranty check.

If your car is under warranty, have an inspection done before your warranty expires. Inspection fees are small when compared to the money you may lose if a mechanical defect is not detected.


The below is an estimated schedule of fees for full mechanical pre purchase inspections across the state.

  • 4 cylinder vehicle
    •  members: $250 / non members: $310
  • 4WD vehicle/vans:
    • members: $315 / non members: $375
  • AIS light vehicle registration inspection:
    • members: $105.50 / non members: $121.27
