    Anyone know how much hassle it is if you don't have a compliance plate when getting a blue slip?

    all depends on the man

    if you can prove previous registration for 2 years i dont believe it is required

    Anyway - my old 75L came from Canberra and had lost the compliance plate when was resprayed
    When I went to get a blue slip they told me I needed a Vehicle Identification Inspection Unit (VIUU) inspection

    OK - minor hassle
    When I went up to book an inspection at RTA - the bloke rang up the bluey and told him to pull his head in
    "its a VW - not a f$#ken Porsche - sop wasting peoples time!" I heard him scream down the phone

    he then politely told me to go back and see Mr Bluey for a new piece of paper.

    30 minutes later I had my plates

    What year? Early 70s and previous did not have compliance plates anyway. Build plate is a different matter.

    My understanding (but don't quote me) is that as long as the chassis number and engine number can be identified then you are ok for rego. Best thing would be to check with the RTA. In the past I have had no problems sorting these sort of issues with them - admittedly on a '52 year model vehicle.
