Moving from South Australia to Queensland with the intention of staying more than 14 days means you need to transfer your vehicle registration to Queensland. Keeping a vehicle registered in South Australia but garaged in Queensland can result in fines, so here’s what you need to do.

Step 1: Obtain a Roadworthy Certificate

To get started, obtain a roadworthy certificate. At Totally Mobile Roadworthy, we make this process easy by coming to you for a thorough safety check. Whether it’s your car, truck, caravan, or motorcycle, our team has you covered.

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

Before driving in Queensland with the intent to transfer your vehicle registration, ensure you have valid Compulsory Third-Party (CTP) insurance. While your South Australia CTP insurance might cover you temporarily, it’s best to confirm this to avoid any legal issues.

Step 3: Visit a Transport and Main Roads Centre

Once you have your roadworthy certificate, head to a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre with your other required documents, like your current vehicle registration and proof of identity. You need to do this in person for the initial transfer. After this step, future renewals can be done online or by phone.

Getting a Refund for Your South Australia Registration

If you want to claim a refund on any remaining portion of your South Australia registration, you’ll need to return your South Australia plates and provide your Queensland safety certificate to a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre. This also requires cancelling your South Australia registration to avoid fines or confusion.
