Ace Mobile Safety Certificates

ACE Mobile Safety Certificates is a long-standing Gold-Coast based business providing mobile Safety Certificates (Roadworthy Certificates), COI Certificates for LIGHT and HEAVY VEHICLES (trucks up to 16t GVM and trailers up to 10t ATM) across the Gold Coast and Tweed Area.

A little bit of history:

August 2000, Phil Benger registered and began working as a mobile mechanic under the trading name of ‘PHILIP BENGER MOBILE MECHANIC’ by providing mobile mechanical repairs and maintenance service.

By 2001 Phil had obtained the required licence to undertake inspections for Queensland Safety Certificates at a fixed Authorised Inspections Station as well as mobile. Phil was both the Proprietor and Authorised Inspector of both fixed and mobile AIS. He carried out inspections on light vehicles and light trailers.

Apr 2010, Teresa Benger became the Proprietor of the business for both fixed and mobile AIS. Phil remained as a subcontractor. Pre-purchase inspections  now also offered to the public as a mobile service.

By focusing the businesses resources and skills purely on inspections, ACE had become highly knowledgeable in the field, concerning the Queensland Government rules and regulations for motor vehicles.

In 2012, the first official website was created for ACE MOBILE SAFETY CERTIFICATES.

In early 2016, ACE has introduced additional services with an increased focus on heavy vehicle inspections and HVRAS measure ups.  

In November 2016 the business changed ownership, with Zoltan and Zoltanne Guth becoming the main subcontractor and Proprietor respectively. Zoltan had been working for ACE for over 12 months prior, thus he was familiar with all the protocols and processes and was able to continue to provide the high level of service ACE is known for.

Presently ACE provides mobile RWC, (Roadworthy Certificate) HVRAS (Heavy Vehicle Registration Assessment Scheme), light and heavy vehicle COI (Certificate of Inspection) and comprehensive pre-purchase inspections for the following vehicle types: 

- CARS /passenger cars, utes, Light trucks up to and including 4.5t/ 
- TRAILERS LIGHT and HEAVY/ caravans, horse floats, boat trailers, etc. up to and including 10t ATM/ 
- MOTORBIKES / scooters, mopeds, trikes/ 
- HEAVY VEHICLES (up to and including 16t GVM) 

ACE is one of the first companies, which began to offer MOBILE INSPECTION CERTIFICATES ONLINE (ICO) which provides our customers with a digital certificate and in many cases enables them to transfer registrations online without having to personally attend a transport office.

Our inspectors are continuously striving to provide quality, affordable and punctual inspections. ACE currently employs three administration staff and four inspectors.
