Your CRW is proof that your vehicle met a set of basic safety requirements on the day it passed its test. Only test items that are visible and accessible can be assessed at the CVRT. A CRW or EU Recognition Certificate cannot be regarded as a warranty for your vehicle. Therefore should you be considering purchasing a used vehicle, you should have it independently checked by a qualified mechanic before you purchase it, or else buy a vehicle with a warranty from an authorised dealer. Visit the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission website for further information.
Your CRW has a detachable disc that you are legally obliged to display on your vehicle. The disc must be displayed on the windscreen of the vehicle or in the case of a goods trailer, as close as possible to the registration plate or where it can be easily inspected.
