Using Victoria Club Permit in Queensland?
« on: May 17, 2019, 06:18:57 PM »
Just wondering if anyone has experience owning a vehicle in Queensland on Victoria's club permit scheme?  I'm talking 'semi-permanent' residence in Brisbane (maintaining a home in Melbourne) rather than a trip.

Victoria is okay with this, but Queensland authorities might take a different view.

I suspect the normal rules will apply and you would have n-1 (check, itís different in each state) days to change all your vehicle registrations and licence.

From the QLD website :  ďIf you move to Queensland from another state or territory, you must get Queensland registration and a Queensland driver licence. You have 14 days to register your vehicle in Queensland and may be fined if you donít.Ē

https://www.qld.gov.au/transport/registration/transfer/interstate

I imagine they (cops) would ask you if where you live is rented/owned by you ... if so, thatís where you reside and they will expect you to change everything.  I was once informed I had 90days to stop using my EU license in Aust., I was here on holiday, lived in London at the time (citizen, and tax resident)

So where you actually reside/live will be key here.  Iíve no idea what the legal definition for Dept. of Transport is but a QLD Cop is neither a clever or nice animal (in my opinion, next big royal commission I hope).  What do all the military folk do who are shunted around the country every two years or so?


Driving on a historic plate from another state will just draw attention to yourself, especially if you live here

The QLD SIV (special interest vehicle) scheme is next to useless, I looked today, can I register Cherry at your place? :)

Motorcycles Bazz.  Craig is right, the Queensland special interest scheme is like the old H-plate regime in Victoria.  Now we can ride/drive whenever and wherever we want for either 45 or 90 days per year.  Thinking about how many days you actually ride each bike, this is really worthwhile!  At least full bike registration in Brisbane would be less than for a car.

I won't own where I'd live in Brisbane.  Place of residence might be interpretive...

Re military personnel, yes there is a procedure in place for licences to be changed as part of interstate and overseas postings.
