Engineering and market evaluation vehicles
Vehicle Standards and Investigations inspect vehicles for the purposes of engineering or market evaluation.
Vehicles imported as evaluation vehicles may only be registered in the name of the person or company to whom the import approval has been granted. This is the name shown on the import approval documents.
The registration will be conditional, for a specified period and cannot be transferred. These vehicles do not have Australian identification plates (also known as compliance plates).
This registration option is only available to full volume vehicle manufacturers allowed to operate under Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development Administrator Circular 0-4-8.
