1How do I apply for non-compliant vehicle registration

To register a non-compliant vehicle.

  1. Consult with Vehicle Standards Unit for potential eligibility for non-compliant conditional registration.
  2. If the vehicle has been imported you will also need to provide import documents from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development (DITCRD).
  3. Have the vehicle inspected at an Approved Inspection Station.
  4. The Approved Inspection Station Vehicle Examiner will provide a copy of the failed Application for Registration of a Heavy Vehicle, or Application to Register a Light Motor Vehicle or Trailer and any additional information as required to Vehicle Standards Unit.
  5. An Approval in Principle may be issued to the Vehicle Examiner including appropriate conditions of registration.
  6. Submit an Application for Registration of a Heavy Vehicle, or Application to Register a Light Motor Vehicle or Trailer marked as passed and with conditional registration selected to Service Tasmania with your:
    1. approval in principle
    2. Tasmanian licence or other evidence of identity
    3. proof of entitlement to register the vehicle.

2What if I sell my vehicle?

Unless the conditions applied state otherwise, the conditions placed on the registration must remain the same and be followed by the new operator.

3What will I receive?

  • Red and yellow “C plate”.
  • Certificate of registration.
  • Certificate of Approved Operations.

This must be complied with and carried in the vehicle at all times.
