If you’re moving from the ACT to Queensland with the intention of staying longer than 14 days, you’ll need to transfer your vehicle registration to Queensland. Keeping your vehicle registered in the ACT but garaged in Queensland can result in fines, so it’s essential to follow the correct steps for a smooth transition.

Step 1: Obtain a Roadworthy Certificate

The first step to transferring your registration to Queensland is obtaining a roadworthy certificate. At Totally Mobile Roadworthy, we offer mobile safety checks, coming to you to ensure your vehicle meets Queensland’s safety requirements.

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

Before driving in Queensland to transfer your registration, confirm that your CTP insurance is valid. While your ACT CTP insurance might cover you temporarily, always check to ensure compliance with Queensland laws.

Step 3: Visit a Transport and Main Roads Centre

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

Getting a Refund for Your ACT Registration

To claim a refund on any remaining portion of your ACT registration, you’ll need to return your ACT plates and submit your Queensland safety certificate at a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre. Additionally, remember to cancel your ACT registration to avoid any fines or complications.
