If you’re relocating from Western Australia to Queensland and plan to stay longer than 14 days, you must transfer your vehicle registration to Queensland. Vehicles registered in Western Australia but kept in Queensland may incur fines, so follow these steps to avoid any issues.

Step 1: Get a Roadworthy Certificate

To transfer your registration to Queensland, you first need a roadworthy certificate. At Totally Mobile Roadworthy, we provide convenient mobile safety checks for a variety of vehicles. Our team comes to you, saving you the trouble of visiting an assessment centre.

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

Before you drive your vehicle in Queensland with the intent to transfer registration, confirm that your CTP insurance is valid. While your Western Australia CTP insurance might cover you temporarily, it’s best to double-check to avoid any complications.

Step 3: Go to a Transport and Main Roads Centre

After getting your roadworthy certificate, go to a Transport and Main Roads customer service centre with your other documents, including your current registration and proof of identity. This must be done in person for the initial registration transfer. Subsequent renewals can be completed online or by phone.

Getting a Refund for Your Western Australia Registration

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