Conditional registration

Non-complying vehicles are only offered conditional registration if it is safe to do so and a complying vehicle cannot perform the function.

The following factors are considered when deciding an Application for Conditional Registration and the conditions that are applied to the registration:

  • The nature and extent of any failure of the vehicle to meet applicable vehicle standards
  • The safety of:
    • The vehicle operator
    • The vehicle’s passengers (if any)
    • The vehicle mixing with other normal complying vehicles
    • The vehicle mixing with pedestrians
  • Time of day or night of operation
  • Special considerations relating to the area of operation (if any).

Note: Operators of oversize and overmass vehicles must also comply with the conditions of the relevant access notice or permit. For more information contact Special Permits Unit on 1300 656 371 for intrastate permits, and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator on 1300 696 487 for interstate permits.
