Posted: Sat Aug 07, 2020 12:51 pm    Post subject: Transfering an interstate car to NSW

Iíve just finished bolting on my NSW plates
It took me exactly 2 weeks at an all up cost of just under $2000 inc transfer fees.

Some advise for anyone else contemplating doing the same.

Get a full receipt from the seller. Include the sellers full name, address and licence number and make sure yours are on there as well. Also ensure the rego, chassis and engine numbers are listed too. The RTA only need to see this receipt and are not interested in interstate rego papers.

Have the car weighed at a public weighbridge and make sure that details like chassis number etc are on the ticket.

Employ an engineer to give you a report on the car. I donít want to say who I used on a public forum. The RTA are looking at culling their numbers shortly and dividing them into areas of speciality, which will no doubt push up the costs and give the RTA more control over them. Youíll need to ask around or go to the RTAís website for a list of approved engineers.

Next youíll need a blue slip from an authorised checking station. The RTA is really squeezing their nuts at the moment and I went to 3 to find one that was prepared to do it. And they are not likely to do you many favours for the $77 standard fee. I found the best way was to play dumb and take your car to one and ask what you have to do to get it registered. Youíll soon find out if they donít want to do it or are likely to give you a hard time if they do.

Get an insurance greenslip. Most companies I rang put a $200 surcharge on cars older than 10 years, which in my case added up to $568. I found that AAMI didnít have such a surcharge as they go more on your comprehensive insurance rating. In my case they charged me $368, so itís worth considering.

Next is trip to the RTA. Go on a Saturday. Take with you your engineers report, blueslip, weighbridge ticket, receipt, and gleenslip. Nothing else!! Tell them first up that you want to transfer an ďinterstateĒ car. I failed to tell them this and I was rudely informed that they would not transfer the car until I handed in the old plates. Keep your cool and donít argue with them. Once they realised the car came from Victoria their mood changed. I was then told they didnít care less about what happens to interstate plates and that I could hang em up in my shed for all they cared. Phew!!
Total time at the RTA was just 25 minutes
You don't need to take the car in but if you have owned it for less than 3 months they may call you in later to check the chassis and engine numbers for themselves. Something about car rebirthing I'll have to wait and see.

I consider that I was very lucky to have got mine thru so quickly and at a moderate cost so don't expect the same to happen to you.

congratulations.....2 grand is a lot of dough....what did the engineer charge, did he give it good going over, what was he particular about.....just for reference purposes you know ..It will be interseting to see what the RTA try and hit me for. I handed in the plates of the 37 and was the last registered owner so they better not try the transfer fee crap on me again.

WOW ... we must have it easy here

a couple of years back i bought an A roadster from NSW

For Vic (full) Rego ineeded a current RWC .. Reciept .. copy of NSW rego

A copy of engineers cert (from NSW)

Rego cost was around $350.00

Stamp duty is calculated at $40.00 per 1000.00

so that depends on how much u tell em u paid

Took me longer to screw new plates on than it did for rego !

If you think 2 grand is dear pep then youíd better brace yourself mate.
At Friday nights ASRF meeting we were informed that the new head of the RTA is an engineer who is very safety conscious. Things that are being discussed at the moment are high speed brake tests (factor in a set of tyres or two) and stress testing of seat belt mounts. They also want to specialise the engineers so youíll have some engineers accredited to do streetrods and some to do cobras etc. This will drastically reduce the number of engineers we can go to and consequently drive up costs.

Hereís a brakedown of my costs.
$750 transfer fee
$240 rego fee
$60 plates
$77 blueslip
$368 greenslip
$20 weighbridge
$385 engineer

Total $1900.

I could have saved some dough by telling porkies about the value of the car but you have to careful doing that these days. A mate of mine put his 32 roadster down at 10K and got caught out. Apparently they checked on his comprehensive insurance policy and he had to pay the difference along with a fine.

The engineer I used was quite fair and his price was more than reasonable. Some engineers are charging as much as 2 grand these days but I guess it depends on how radical your car is. I donít think you should have too much trouble in that regard Pep.

I wonder what we are paying the engineer for?

I'd be happy to pay the 2K for an approved registration.

After reading a separate post on the Guidelines tonight, it seems they were a total waste in NSW and maybe VIC. I know ACT has accepted them in thier entirety in conjunction with with engineer approval.

Cheers and beers

So if our arses are covered, the vehicle is engineered, and has passed a standard brake test that backyard Bob has to put his piece of shit Corolla through, why the extra test. Who pays if, during this rediculous test, in which I'm sure someone else will be driving your brand new pride and joy, a blowout (not related to your brand new brakes being tested), or a brain fade occours and the car ends up needing another 4 years work to have a second attempt at passing this insane ruling

Cheers and beers

Are you going to use a sydney engineer, or would you like the number for a NSW aprooved one in Queenbeyan?

I used a guy in Queenbeyan, he was expensive but fair.

Cheers 32coupe, but I use a bloke in Mitchell that I know, same deal, pricey but fair, and rego like him. I will be going for ACT rego on the bucket. I understand some states didn't accept them all but it just shits me to hear of all the hassles in other states which have supposidly accepted a set of Australia wide rules for construction.

For the first time ever I think it sounds like ACT is the esiest place to get rego now. I had better pull my finger out before this frame of mind changes.

Cheers and beers

Jimbob, have you got a full quote off your engineer? I have used him and found that his final bill was far from what was agreed. He may just supprise you before you get your report.

This is a most useful thing to keep in mind when buying an insterstate car.
If say the previous owner changed the engine and did not notify his RTA then you could have all sorts of bother trying to explain why your engine number is different from that shown on the rego documents. And with police issue numbers it's even worse coz these records are not kept in many states.
As long as all the details match what's on the reciept and that's what the blue slip guy verified then you're sweet.

Also don't do as a mate of mine did and take your comprehensive insuance policy to the RTA along with your transfer paperwork stating the purchase price at half that amount.
That caused him some real bother
