Hi Cadas,


Good luck with moving states.


I cant answer your SA to NSW question so therefore bumping it up.


I know when we took our cars from WA to Tasmania, it involved going over the pits for worthiness and re rego.


Good luck

We bought a car in Adelaide and drove it back to QLD. We then returned the number plates to the Dept of Transport and the rego sticker back to the last owner (sending the sticker was part of the purchase deal).

To re register here ,like Susie, we had to take the car to an 'MOT ' type station and have it inspected over the pits. It was all pretty straight forward to do .

p.s,, don't forget to add the transfer duty costs onto the purchase price to make sure it is as good a deal as it sounds.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
