Vehicle owners in Queensland are all required by law to report any modifications made to their car. This is to ensure that the mods are safe and legal. Certain things are barred or have limits so that they don’t pose a threat to the public on the roads.
The vehicles must be checked by an accredited inspector. This is typically an experience mechanic that has acquired the necessary qualifications to perform the task. If the inspector is satisfied by the safety checks, then he or she will issue a certification that makes his findings official.
Inspectors also have the power to issue mod plates in Queensland. These are coded plates that indicate the type of changes performed on the vehicle. The certification and the plate must be with the driver at all times. They should be displayed prominently for all to see.
