I (a danish guy) am about to buy a car in NT with NSW plates on it. I would like to keep the NSW plates on the car because I plan to sell it in NSW. Are there any possibility to do the change of name on the registration by mail, post or phone? The car has a pretty new rego renewed by fax and phone. The only thing I could find were if you have a NSW licence and NSW adress, wich I don't have.
Do you know any ways or shortcutsto do that?
If I want to be a member of a car owner club, which will be the best for me to sign in? I will be travelling in NT, WA, SA and NSW)
Thanks in advance for your help.
Buying or selling a vehicle
When you buy a vehicle
Before you buy a vehicle, you should check the registration and CTP insurance details of the vehicle via myRTA or phone the RTA Contact Centre on 13 22 13. You must transfer the registration into your name within 14 days of the vehicle coming into your possession or management.
You'll need to visit a motor registry with:
Proof of identity, or if you're registering the vehicle in the name of a company or organisation, proof that the company or organisation is a legal entity.
Proof of entitlement to register the vehicle. If the vehicle is to be registered in another person's name, a letter of authorisation must be provided detailing the name and address of the person to be recorded as the registered operator. A registered operator may or may not be the owner of the vehicle.
A completed Application for Transfer form.
And you may need to pay:
Stamp duty (unless exempt).
Additional motor vehicle tax (or national heavy vehicle charges) if you have bought your vehicle from someone receiving an RTA concession (such as a pensioner) and you are not eligible for that concession.
Late transfer surcharge. A surchage will be applied to customers who fail to transfer the registration within 14 days of the date of acquisition.
If you have an E-Tag you should also update your number plate details with your tag provider.
Transferring and Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance
A vehicle's existing CTP insurance will be automatically transferred when the registration is transferred. You don't need to do anything about CTP insurance until the registration is due for renewal.
