If you’re relocating from Tasmania to Queensland with plans to stay longer than 14 days, you’ll need to transfer your vehicle registration to Queensland. Vehicles registered in Tasmania but garaged in Queensland can result in fines, so here’s what you need to do.

Step 1: Obtain a Roadworthy Certificate

To transfer your registration to Queensland, you need a roadworthy certificate. At Totally Mobile Roadworthy, we offer convenient mobile safety checks for various vehicles, from cars to trucks, caravans, and scooters. Our team comes to you for a hassle-free inspection.

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

Before you drive your vehicle in Queensland with the intent to transfer registration, ensure you have valid Compulsory Third-Party (CTP) insurance. While your Tasmania CTP insurance might cover you temporarily, always check to avoid legal issues.

Step 3: Go to a Transport and Main Roads Centre

After obtaining your roadworthy certificate, visit a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre with your other required documents, like your current registration and proof of identity. You must do this in person for the initial registration transfer, but future renewals can be done online or by phone.

Getting a Refund for Your Tasmania Registration

To apply for a refund on any remaining portion of your Tasmania registration, you need to return your Tasmania plates and submit your Queensland safety certificate to a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre. Don’t forget to cancel your Tasmania registration to avoid any fines or confusion.
