I have an oil leak. How does this impact on the cars Roadworthy Certificate?
As a Roadworthy Certificate is essentially a safety check, an oil leak will only be relevant to a Roadworthy Certificate Inspection when oil is leaking on the ground or other components to such an extent that it poses a safety hazard. While we always recommend that oil leaks are repaired, they have to be serious oil leaks before they impact on the vehicles roadworthiness.
