State Registration and Safety Compliance for Imported Cars

Most modern cars do not require expensive modifications to bring them up to an ‘Acceptable Standard’. Consult the State or Territory Registering Authority of where you intend to register your vehicle for their requirements.

General modifications that are sometimes required (differs from state to state and normally more cost effective to have carried out in Australia) are:

Personal Import Plate and Stamp Duty

Once a vehicle has been registered, the third copy of the import approval is forwarded to the engraving company listed who will supply a Personal Import Plate which is affixed under the bonnet.

In some States there is a Stamp Duty of between 2% and 5% of the vehicles value payable upon Registration.

Number plates are supplied by the Registration Authority for a fee.
