Need quick advice on buying a vehicle from interstate.

Sorry i dont know what forum this should really go in but thought there should be people who can help me in here.

Im in melbourne and am going to hopefully buy an XB coupe from NSW. The car is currently registered there till jan next year but i cant get through to the NSW road and traffic authorities to ask them about how i do it because they're shut on weekends. I was hoping someone could tell me what they will require and whether they can suspend the current registration and issue me with an unregistered vehicle permit so i can drive it down here to victoria where i will get it roadworthied and stuff.

Its just the drive down which is the main problem, but if possible id like to keep the registration on the car because it is being sold with it.

Any ideas?

Re: Need quick advice on buying a vehicle from interstate.

i reckon you won't have any trouble driving it on interstate plates.... all rentals for instance have plates from the state rented from... (if that makes sense)

i'm sure you can cancel the rego there and get a refund on the percentage not used. then put that towards registering it here.

i'd think that you can simply transfer it and may not even need a roadworthy. (here's to hoping!!) lol.

good luck.

I'd agree with above post. It's usually ok to run other states rego for 3 mths (I think) before change required. Don't know about rwc.

I just done the same thing with my car not long ago when i moved to victoria
