Australia’s states and territories have to vary the procedure for transferring proprietorship, and while a driving licence isn’t required, it’s vital that new holder follow the correct processes.
In NSW, for example, within 14 working days of receiving a registered vehicle, the previous holder must submit an intimation of disposal, and the new vehicle buyer must then pay a move fee, stamp duty and secondary costs.
The new vehicle owner must also show documents of identity and verified documents of registration claim – such as a paper of sale, receipt, tax statement or auto dealer sales contract.
There’s a hold. Well, it’s not a catch, but you should be informed: once you hold the car and registered in your name and all other verified documents you will be sent the penalties for whoever happens to manage it.
