Transfer Registration Vic
How to transfer registration in Vic
If you have moved to Victoria from another state or territory in Australia, you must transfer registration to Vic within 3 months of settling there. If you do not transfer registration, you will be driving an unregistered vehicle, even if it is still registered in another state or territory. Find out how to transfer registration to Vic.
First, make an appointment with a VicRoads customer service centre. On the phone, they will ask for:
- Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and engine number of your vehicle
- Make, model and registration of your vehicle
- Current Victorian driver licence number (if you have one).
Your vehicle will not need an inspection if you can show registration papers and number plates from another state. VicRoads may ask for a Certificate of Roadworthiness (RWC) if you bought the vehicle interstate or its registration is cancelled or expired by more than 3 months.
This checklist will help you smoothly transfer registration to Vic.
|Vehicle registration form||Complete|
|Proof of identity||For example, birth certificate, passport, credit card, Medicare card|
|Proof of garaging address in Vic||For example, rate notice or phone bill|
|Proof of ownership||For example, contract of sale|
|Payment for all fees||Registration, TAC, number plates|
|Your vehicle||Only if inspection is needed|
To transfer rego to Vic from another state or territory, you must cancel registration in the other state or territory.
This will cancel CTP insurance in all states except NSW, where you must cancel registration first and then take proof to the CTP insurer to cancel CTP.
Steps to transfer drivers licence
You can drive in Victoria on an interstate drivers licence while you are a visitor. After 3 months of living in Vic, you must convert to a Vic licence. Simply go in person to a VicRoads customer service centre with your:
- Interstate or territory drivers licence
- Proof of identity, eg, birth certificate, passport, credit card
- Proof of residency, eg, contract of sale or lease agreement
- Driver licence application.
Finally, you will pay a small fee to convert your interstate drivers licence to a Victorian licence.
