When moving from New South Wales to Queensland and planning to stay longer than 14 days, you must transfer your vehicle registration to Queensland. Keeping a vehicle registered in New South Wales but garaged in Queensland could lead to fines and complications, so it’s important to act quickly.

Step 1: Get a Roadworthy Certificate

The first step in transferring your vehicle registration to Queensland is obtaining a roadworthy certificate. At Totally Mobile Roadworthy, we offer mobile safety checks for a range of vehicles, including cars, trucks, caravans, and motorbikes. Our team will come to you, making the process simple and convenient.

Step 2: Ensure Compulsory Third-Party Insurance (CTP)

Before you can drive in Queensland with the intent to register your vehicle, ensure you have valid Compulsory Third-Party (CTP) insurance. You might be covered by your existing insurance from New South Wales, but it’s best to confirm this to avoid any legal issues.

Step 3: Visit a Transport and Main Roads Centre

With your roadworthy certificate and other essential documents (like your current vehicle registration and proof of identity), visit a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre in person. This is a required step for the initial registration transfer. Once completed, you can renew your registration online or by phone. Owners of light vehicles can select from 1, 6, or 12 months of registration, while owners of heavy vehicles have a 3-month option (with single-month registration available via direct debit).

Getting a Refund for Your New South Wales Registration

After registering your vehicle in Queensland, you can apply for a refund on any remaining portion of your New South Wales registration. To do this, you must return your New South Wales number plates and provide a Queensland safety certificate at a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre. Additionally, you must cancel your New South Wales registration to avoid future fines or confusion.
