Are you planning a move to Queensland from Victoria? Ensuring a smooth transition includes transferring your vehicle registration. Failing to do so within 14 days of relocation could lead to fines. Let’s delve into the specifics of transferring your vehicle registration from Victoria to Queensland.

Understanding Queensland Registration Requirements

Queensland mandates that vehicles garaged in the state must be registered there. This means you’ll need to transfer your vehicle registration upon moving to Queensland.

Obtaining a Roadworthy Certificate

Before transferring your registration, you’ll need a roadworthy certificate. Totally Mobile Roadworthy offers convenient assistance in obtaining this certificate.

Registration Options

Queensland offers various registration durations for different vehicle types. Light vehicle owners can choose between 1, 6, or 12-month registrations, while heavy vehicle owners have a 3-month option. Note that single-month registrations are available via direct debit only.

Transferring Your Registration

The process of transferring your registration involves three simple steps

  1. Ensure you’re covered by valid Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance, which can be your existing interstate CTP insurance.
  2. Schedule a safety check with Totally Mobile Roadworthy for a hassle-free experience.
  3. Visit a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre with all necessary documents, including your roadworthy certificate, to complete the transfer in person.

Requesting a Refund for Previous Registration

Upon registering your vehicle in Queensland, you can apply for a refund on the remaining portion of your interstate registration. Simply surrender your interstate plates and present a current Queensland safety certificate at a transport and motoring customer service centre.

Cancelling Previous Registration

After transferring your vehicle registration to Queensland, it’s essential to cancel the registration in your previous state or territory. Once cancelled, you can apply for the refund mentioned earlier.
