If you are working or engaged in some business in Australia, it might be possible that you need to take a transfer to another State for some valid reasons.  While it is fine for settling down in another territory, make sure that the documents pertaining to your vehicle are also properly endorsed accordingly. Though some of the basic information could be obtained through the online service for Rego check, other essential data need to be verified before you buy a vehicle or transfer the existing vehicle bought in another state or territory.

Info about Rego

This is the registration number with the regulatory authorities.  The registration number is dedicated to the State or the Territory concerned where the registration has been done.  The vehicle is supposed to be driven only within the jurisdiction of the State, but not beyond that.  You should remember that the Rego check done online would display the basic info beside some other basics.

Unique VIN number

While is mandatory to know the Vehicle Identification Number for the vehicles registered from Jan, 1989, you can get the details with chassis number and hull / engine number for the vehicles registered before the year cut off year.  The Vehicle Identification Number is a 17 digit number which is essential to identify your vehicle.

Importance of insurance

Remember that while driving a vehicle in Australia, it is your responsibility to ensure that the entire documents are in compliance with the regulations.  Therefore, it becomes mandatory on your part to ensure that the vehicle has at least Compulsory Third Party insurance to say the least.


  • Besides the above, then you also need the details with regard to
  • Make, model of the vehicle
  • Year of manufacture and year of registration
  • Category of the vehicle—-whether personal or commercial
  • Whether the vehicle is mortgaged
  • Whether the vehicle has any pending loan
  • Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) Certificate
  • Odometer info
  • Vehicle history details
  • Details of the insurance

Sometimes, you feel that it is better to sell the vehicle before you relocate to the other state, since the formalities are so cumbersome that you will find it difficult to get the details and also necessary certification from the regulatory authorities.
