Selling your vehicle
Find out the steps you will need to follow to sell a vehicle.
To be able to sell a vehicle you must be the vehicle’s registered operator or have permission to sell the vehicle.
The registered operator is the name or names that will be listed on the vehicle’s registration certificate.
If you are not the registered operator you must provide the buyer written permission to sell the vehicle. This must be in the form of a statutory declaration completed by the registered operator.
If you are selling a vehicle registered in joint names both operators must sign all documents involved in the selling process.
If you, or the buyer, choose to complete part of the process online, the other party can still complete the paper form and submit at Service Tasmania.
The disposal must be submitted within seven days of the sale.
You will not receive any automatic confirmation that it has been processed.
If you would like to make sure the vehicle is no longer in your name you can contact Service Tasmania allowing a week since the submission.
Your name is taken off the registration and you will no longer be responsible for the vehicle for the purpose of registration.
