Do you have a used car that is unregistered or registered interstate? Keep watching and I'll tell you how to register it in Queensland.
Step 1: Make sure you have evidence of identity for all of the registered operators and evidence of where the car will be garaged in Queensland.
If you don't have a Queensland driver licence or another card issued by the Department of Transport and Main Roads, you will need to bring other forms of ID, like an Australian birth certificate, credit card and Medicare card.
Step 2: If your car is unregistered, you need to contact a compulsory third party insurance provider and get a CTP insurance certificate. You need to keep the certificate in the car when you drive to get your inspections and certificates and when you come to register it.
If you need to drive the car for any other reason, like repairs, you will need to buy an unregistered vehicle permit. Use our online service to buy one.
Step 3: Get a Queensland safety certificate, formerly known as a roadworthy, from an approved inspection station. Go to our website to find one.
If your car has been written-off, it needs to be inspected by the Queensland Inspection Service.
And if it has a gas fuel system or has gas appliances you'll also need a certificate from a gas installer.
Finally, if your car has been modified you'll need to get a modification plate from an approved person.
Step 4: Once you have everything you need, bring your documents and car into see one of our friendly staff at a customer service centre and we will get you on the road. If you would like more information on any of the steps in this video go to the Queensland Government website and use our registration help tool or call 13 23 80. And remember, drive safely.
