The QHMC has published Bulletin 4-2015_Certification of imported vehicles prior to first Australian registration.
As of October 1, 2014, the rules relating to the certification of imported pre-ADR vehicles have changed and the LO8 modification Code used for these vehicles has been repealed.
Inspection and certification by an Approved Person (engineer etc.) and the issuing of a blue modification plate showing that the vehicle meets LO8 requirements is no longer required prior to first registration.
Instead, pre-1969 vehicles only will now be checked for compliance with Queensland vehicle standards as part of the Safety Certificate inspection. These requirements are based on the Australian Vehicle Standards Rules and are generally consistent with those of Code LO8.
Please remember, that when changing registration from SIVS to full registration or vice-versa, you need to update the CTP Insurance Class.
See attached Bulletin for details.
The lastest “From the President’s Desk” is now available.
