    Cost at an AUVIS (Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Station . . . don't ya just love acronyms) was $63.00. With 42 days to have issues rectified. But only 21 days to transfer an interstate registration. It came with a Qld. Blue slip which meant nothing.

    In this case the only two items were a small oil leak at the front of the engine (not seen it yet) and an issue with rear seat/seat belts loose . . which was a surprise when the vehicle has a compliance plate that says a two seater . . . I'll unbolt the belts and drop down and make the bed so it becomes no rear seat. Interestingly they said if there is a rear seat(s) there must be belts irrespective of compliance plate but one doesn't argue in these circumstances hey!

    Yeah Graham, it'd be nice if states accepted other states Engineering Certification - by rights if it has a Qld Blue Plate then there should be the original or a copy of the Engineers Certificate retained within the vehicle as it is mandatory Qld requirement the certificate stays with the vehicle. A Blue Slip is purely a Road Worthy Certificate which is also mandatory sellers requirement when selling a vehicle in Qld.

    Be wary if the compliance plate states 4 and you remove the 2 rear seat belts then possibly it'll be re-engineered as a 2 seater and thus possibly implcations with insurance also ..... but who knows what one place will say compared to another :confused:
