How easy and/or what is the process for transferring a car off Historic Registration (in NSW), after you have just purchased it? Here's my dilemma. I'm looking at a vehicle I'm potentially interested in. It's currently registered on Historic plates however, which I understand aren't transferable. If I buy it, what happens with the plates and how do I transfer the rego and organise insurance (comprehensive). I.e. Does the PO immediately have to take the plates off and if so, then how do I change the rego so I can drive home? OR, do the plates just stay on and I then take them off when I get home and hand them over to Service NSW. And what's the deal with insurance? I.e. How do I insure it without knowing what will be it's new plates, when I don't have them yet? I.e. Even if the historical plates just stay on till I transfer the rego how do I actually insure it during this time, assuming I don't actually have the new rego yet? The drive home could be a way and I don't really want to be unregistered or uninsured for it. I'm probably overthinking this, but I just don't know the process. Any help?
