Default Moving interstate.

At the moment I'm living in Adelaide and my Wife got a great job working for the State Government of Victoria. So we have to move to Swan Hill next Friday the 24th of February. My CR is finished and my engineer is trying to finish his report and then hopefully I can book a inspection to have it registered. Then once it's registered I need to transfer it all to Victorian rego. So my question is, Do I use his report and have it inspected fully in Victoria, Rego it here then transfer it. Pass the inspection, not rego it and then rego it in Victoria?
Does it need to be an engineer from Victoria if I get it inspected there. And would I need to go to Melbourne for the inspection. And if I did rego it here first, how much hassle to change it to Victorian rego. It's really stressing me out as I'm loading up a 40 foot shipping container in my front yard with 40 years of shed stuff, trying to leave room in it for the Cobra etc etc etc.
Thanks for any advise given.
JD

Hey Jaydee,

I am currently in the process of building an ICCARS AC Cobra for a melbourne customer and we will be getting the full compliance side of things sorted here in S.A. then the new owner will be able to do a "mechanical inspection" in a licensed garage over in Victoria and do the transfer into his name etc.. He will not have to go through Vic roads to get his car registered there.

The only issue you may have is if you have used an older engine such as a windsor V8 then you may run into trouble, as they are not allowing windsor's for compliance in Victoria other than through an IM 240 emission cycle test. Check this with your engineer but if you have a later model engine such as a BF Boss modular V8 motor or LSA engine then get it complied here prior to going to Vic.

Hope this helps.

Hey Jaydee,

I'd give one of the VASS engineers a call and get their opinion too. Enkelmans have done a few CR's (Square tube and round tube) and they should be able to tell you. They also have a lot of the chassis engineering reports on file too.

The IM240 is completed on all ICV's regardless of engine vintage I believe.

Also, we have the Club Permit system here in VIC too which is also an option for you.

cheers Gregg

Hey Gregg,

in South Australia you do not need to do the IM 240 test as if you have a compliant engine to Euro 2+ spec and maintain the std ECU to run the engine plus the right cats and exhaust system you comply and do not need to do an emission cycle test just an idle emission test at a registered and approved garage.
Cheers

Would not a car that has been engineered and provided a VIN number be easier to move between States regardless of the moronic bureaucratic variances in requirements?

Getting rego in SA, the car then has some sort of compliance history which the paper pushers seems far more comfortable to work with as simple administrative change, over a brand new rego incorporating VASS issues.

Would be worth a call to an Enklemans or equivalent VASS engineer here just to confirm what issues in change over might be struck.

Tom Bullock is your contact at Enkelman. He engineered my Pace for full registration and he was great to deal with.

Hi Wil,

That was the case up to about 6-8 years ago, as that was how my LS1 ICV Cobra was assessed. I think they changed it because of the challenges of being assured that the ECU is "Stock", Cats are new - not old etc etc. The IM240 removes all doubt I suppose as they now don't care what you have as long as is passes their test.

Best guys to ask as Slowy and Paintworks said are the VASS engineers. They do this everyday.

cheers

Gregg

I've been through the IM 240 test as I have a Windsor running LPG. I fitted late model cats and with some tuning we got the emission in range. I'm not sure how long between getting the nod from the engineer to booking a test takes. I will try to stay in SA and pass it. But if it fails first time then I'm not sure how long I have to wait for a second test. How many of you guys have past the first time round? How stringent is the test. I have no idea what to expect. I know they just need to rev it to 3300 to check the noise.

G'day JD,
Last year I transferred my cobra from NSW to VIC Registration. From what I recall I needed proof of ownership, Victorian roadworthy certificate. I also had the NSW compliance certificate. If it hasn't been register for 12 months in another state I'm not sure if this might be a problem. Check out the regulations on the Vicroads website Individually Constructed Vehicles. This sight will be of some help. Mark

Hey mate,

passing the car here in S.A. is a good idea IMHO and if your car is built nice and tidy with all of the requirements in the "Statement of Requirements" fulfilled then you should be fine (just check over those and double check against your car build) - passed my GT40 first go and Anthony's AC Cobra passed first go even with those big wide wheels on it LOL... I was always told that they will pick something just to be pricks, but that wasn't true, they just hate being lied to; like most people I guess.

Just don't bullsh@t the inspector and always tell him the truth and he will work with you not against you..
Good luck with it mate.

Great car, I had a look at it up the Nationals when Phil finished it, he did a great job.

Default My humble opinion.

Finish the kit in SA.
Once it's fully registered it should be no different then transferring any other vehicle.

Ie. RWC, Proof of ownership, and VIN.
Being an ICV, I'd keep my compliance papers and eng Certs handy, but I'd find it highly unusual if they asked for them. It should really be no different to registering and transferring a Toyota Corolla.

My post is based purely on opinion, which is based purely on my experience transferring other vehicles.

It isn't quite that easy, but given where you are moving to JD I'd think that as long as you have the paperwork as stated by Dimis and the engineering paperwork on hand you should be fine.
The larger metro registration offices are a bit more anal than the country ones.
