    Hi guys,
    I need your help. If anybody know or have dealt with it before.
    I am looking to buy a car from Qld. But I am not sure of the process, how it's going to workout. As I am in Victoria.

    I know, The car will need a Victorian RWC and rego.

    But how do I transfer the car onto my name?
    Where do I do that in Qld or Vic?
    How do I bring it to Vic?
    Roughly how much will be the cost to do all this?
    Kindly need your expertise.
    Thanks

    hmmm i cant really answer any of your question but let me tell you my story.
    i bought a car from QLD and trucked it to NSW. rego ran out on the journey so it was unregistered by the time i got it. it was obviously modified to a high level so the local blue slip guy was not interested unless i had an engineers certificate. the engineer wanted $1000 and an emissions test pass. Im just going to wait till 2020 and put it on club rego, or strip it i haven't decided i think Victoria is only 25 years for club rego.
    I have been told i can drive 60 days a year on club rego. club rego is only $100 per year.
    if its a daily driver this won't do but for me its probably as much as i would drive mine anyway.

    I've done interstate transfers before.

    Is this car registered in QLD?

    If so, you can just directly transfer it into your name here in Vic with Vicroads.

    Appointment is needed which I think is only $25 or so. You'll need to prove you purchased it so make sure to have all the paperwork and a receipt and you will need a RWC issued in Victoria.

    Cost of this is basically a full year's worth of VIC rego (around $815 at the moment) and stamp duty (based on the car's market value).

    Plus whatever costs involved to make the car roadworthy. If it has a lot of mods, you're going to need to remove some of it for the inspection, depending on how strict your RWC guy is. Could do majority of this yourself to save some coin.

    Bringing it to VIC is easy, I've done from QLD to VIC via Patrick Auto Care which cost me $700 from a Brisbane depot to my door.

    So far it's a cost of $1550 or so, add on stamp duty and RWC cost which is uncertain unless you can describe the car?

    Thank you guys,

    The car is stock standard and it is registered in Qld.

    How about if I drive it back from Qld to Vic?

    Can I drive a car from Qld to Vic, on Qld rego, which is not on my name until I come back to Vic and get RWC and then go to vicroads to register?

    And how is the drive from Gold coast to Melbourne?
    Thanks heaps

    As long as you have all the QLD rego papers filled in and signed correctly for the transfer yes you can drive it on Qld reg no problem. You probably have 21 days or something to do the transfer. Check on Vicroads website or give them a call.

    2 years ago I sold a NSW registered car to some QLDers. they ended up sending me some paperwork whereby i could get a refund on the remaining rego as they were unable to transfer the NSW rego into QLD rego or claim any reimbursement. So they basically lost 6 months rego value in the car. So just be aware you may not be able to transfer the remaining rego into your name if VIC is the same rules as other states.

    Yes you can do this. As long as you have a valid receipt to prove you own it there are no issues. The seller also needs to fill in QLD reg transfer even though you are never going to transfer your name into QLD rego since you don't live there, it just means he's done his due diligence.

    I'd be more inclined to send it down as your time and fuel is more than the cost of delivery. If it's a expensive car then get a luxury car carrier that does one car at a time in a fully enclosed trailer. Cost is tripled.

    It can be done but ask yourself one thing. Do you really want to do it.

    Get the Vin Number and ring or take it to Vicroads and make sure its good
    A car I bought from NSW had been registered there for 7 years
    Brought it back to Victoria (where it origionally was complianced in 2001) and could not register it
    Duplicate Vin was in WA and the origional car

    if you decide you do want to transport it i used
    Jims door to door towing ( he can do lowered cars) 0408 441 619
    This is a real problem with most of your standard freight companies and i wasted days filling in email forms and waiting for quotes. Most of them state car must have 150mm clearance or something even a standard car would fail to have.

    Id take RODO's advice though and do some checking with vic roads before you do anything. Twin Terror is probably also right. Buy a victorian car if you want less trouble, owning a "legal" 300 is trouble enough
