Can anyone give us advice as to what specifics your caravan must comply with in order to be road worthied?
We have a second hand caravan, which needs to be transfered onto our name, hence it has to be re-road worthied?
Advice will really be welcomed !!

Hi Robin & Claudine
The following is what gets tested:
1) All rear lights (parks; breaks; indicators
& numberplate) must be in 100%
working condition.
2) All reflectors must be in tact.
3) Both service & hand brakes must be
working. They do actualy get
tested.
4) Tyres must have minimum 1mm thread
over 100% of the tread.
5) Wheel bearings get tested for
play. Too much play would
indicate worn bearings.
6) The entrance must be able to
open and close properly.
If you need any further help, please feel free to contact me at dave@freightlink.co.za

Hi

I had my 1983 Caravette 6 go through a privatised roadworthy station in March.The test lasted less than 5 minutes, as the inspector only tested the rear lights, and this for R120-00.Just my 5 cents worth.

Dave's reply sums it up. Also check the undercarriage for rotten floor/surface rust they also check for that. In P E they also check if you have red triangles in your caravan.
