    Default Interstate transfer onto Club Plates

    I realise there are several threads of a similar nature on the go but this is a specific query. Having just driven the Familiale back from QLD I now need to get it onto WA plates. Donat registered it in QLD and under WA rules it needs to be re-inspected before local plates can be issued. A member of the VCC of WA suggested I get a club plate inspection (by the VCC scrutineer in Albany) and transfer from full QLD to WA club plates. This would avoid the cost and hassle of a full 'over the pits' official inspection. Having driven the car back from QLD and only being aware of a rear tail light/indicator fault and the interior fan not working it could be the thing to do. Does anyone know if it is possible to follow this route please? Has anyone in WA brought a vehicle in from interstate and had a club inspection and then put it straight onto WA club rego? In other words bypassing the official Govt inspection process!

    One would hope that 5,654km might be sufficient proof - it even stops well. Located the fault in the indicator - poor contact. Only interior fan to locate fault.

    Sorry I didn't make it to Parkes. Was heading there on Sat but had a severe reality check on Friday night and headed for home - via the Barrier Hwy. Maybe next time.

    The only fly in the ointment would be that all states seemed to increase their motor vehicle compliance at the end of 2008. What used to be easy has become much less so. I would try the club plate inspection first. If it works, terrific.

    You know that your car is roadworthy. The rest is just tax and mirrors. Most new cars don't need an inspection in their first 3 years. So that means you can be driving around in a 3 year old car with bald tyres, badly damaged rim because the wife parks by ear, worn brake pads and stuffed wheel alignment and not need an inspection compared with a car that is carefully maintained and in excellent condition but requiring a pit inspection. Wait till the "mechanic" tries to move the front wheels with the CX jacked up and see if he can convince Mr Diravi to budge.
