Registration Transfer Fees
I just spoke to vicroads about me and my dad swapping cars. Basic story is that he also has an AU but the update with electric front windows and he also has cruise control on his. He want to sell it and im trying to convince him to swap cars with me and sell mine. I will just swap my exhaust, suspension, stereo and a few other little things over. In order to do this though it will cost us in excess of $500 each! We have to pay transfer fee's of $28.10 each as well as $8 for every $200 of the market value of the vehicles. I think that this is ridiculous when the vehicles are only being transferred from one member of the immediate family to another! How does it work when a 16/17yo kids parents have the car registered in their name and then swap it to the kids name when he turns 18, is it the same? How can the government justify this crap. Why should i have to pay money to them (a kickback?) just so me and my dad can swap cars?
