If you’re moving from the Northern Territory to Queensland with the intention of staying longer than 14 days, you need to transfer your vehicle registration to Queensland. Vehicles registered in the Northern Territory but kept in Queensland could incur fines, so here’s what you need to do to ensure a seamless transition.

Step 1: Get a Roadworthy Certificate

To transfer your registration to Queensland, you need a roadworthy certificate. At Totally Mobile Roadworthy, we offer mobile safety checks for various vehicles, including cars, trucks, caravans, and motorbikes. Our team will come to you, making the process easier and more convenient.

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

Before driving your vehicle in Queensland with the intent to transfer registration, ensure your Compulsory Third-Party (CTP) insurance is valid. Although your Northern Territory CTP insurance might cover you temporarily, double-check to avoid any legal complications.

Step 3: Visit a Transport and Main Roads Centre

With your roadworthy certificate and other required documents, including your current registration and proof of identity, visit a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre. This must be done in person for the initial registration transfer, but future renewals can be completed online or by phone.

Getting a Refund for Your Northern Territory Registration

To apply for a refund on the remaining portion of your Northern Territory registration, return your Northern Territory plates and submit your Queensland safety certificate at a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre. Make sure to cancel your Northern Territory registration to avoid fines or confusion later on.
