    Default NSW - Re-registration of car as 2 seater

    I've been searching for some time for proper info on what the process is for removing the rear seats & belts legally in a hatchback such as a 205. Frankly noone can fit in there anyway.

    So I emailed the RTA's technical enquiries office and promptly received a response. I've decided to honour the RTA's email disclaimer and not copy and paste directly here, however bottom line for the process is:

    * Remove seats
    * Drive immediately to blue slip inspection station with registration paperwork (incl. certificate of registration) <technically the most legal way would be to have the inspection station remove the seats...>
    * Have 'adjustment of records' inspection done (I'm assuming it isnt a full blue slip inspection or I'd fail miserably...)
    * Present 'adjustment of records' to RTA motor registry to have a new registration certificate printed.

    Hope this helps answer some questions, and I'll put in some search tags below

    Sorry for digging a slightly stale post, but before the forum crash I seem to recall that you had photos of the 'conversion' and i remember the back of the 205 looking very tidy - to the point where it looked as though it rolled out of the factory with 2 seats.

    Any chance of reposting the pics? I am considering doing someone similar to my 205.

    Thanks

    Did I do anything last night that suggested I was sane?

    One of mates whilst I was at RMIT had an Asian GF. Her parents went everywhere with her. Even when he took her out.
    He filled the back seat with empty cardboard boxes and eliminated the problem.
    They are now married.

    My 205 was NSW registered with a full cage and no back seats before I pulled it off the road. What's the issue?

    Technically that is illegal and technically if you made a significant insurance claim for 3rd party injury / property it could be denied as the car was not roadworthy. All theoretical and unlikely, but possible.

    In this instance I'm just trying to follow the rules as best as possible, although I recognise the 205 will never be fully compliant (too low, too loud, aftermarket steering wheel, front wheels not quite inside guards {only 2mm out, but still...}).

    Edit: just read you had a full cage and not half cage. That is DEFINITELY not kosher and nowadays actually near impossible to get registered (in the past could have had a Rally rego but not anymore). Whether the cops bother defecting you is a matter of behaviour, luck and attitude!
