POST 1996 Vehicles

Quick Links:






Before you purchase your vehicle you need to be aware of the Federal Regulations effecting the importation of your vehicle.

Individuals CANNOT apply to import Vehicles manufactured on or after 01/01/96 (except in special circumstances), however approved companies known as Registered Automotive Workshops (RAWs) may import a limited range of used vehicles on behalf of individuals.

Please be aware that Post 1996 vehicles imported by RAWs must undergo RHD (Right Hand Drive) conversion as well as a range of modifications and maintenance procedures to ensure that they meet minimum safety and environmental standards, which must be carried out by the RAWS engineer. This is called compliance and you will be charged for this work and the costs of importation.

You cannot import custom or modified vehicles into Australia. Vehicles must be stock standard (the way they left the factory).
