How do I get my rego renewed? I'm travelling in WA with a NSW rego.

RTA sent me an email saying:
Customers who are travelling in another state, except the ACT, can obtain an inspection report from:
- the registering authority in the state or territory (eg Vicroads)
- an agent that the interstate authority has approved
- a recognised motor industry body that is a member of the Australian Automobile Association (ie RACV, RACWA, RACQ, RAA South Australia).

I don't really know who that means I can get an inspection from. In a follow up email they told me to call WA transport. It's the weekend, so I can't call now. Hopefully someone here knows before then?

I'm not likely to move back to NSW either, possibly QLD. Can I register in WA or do I need a WA license for that?

Try contacting RAC WA, phone either 13 11 11(assistance) or 13 17 03(office), and they can put you in contact with an inspection location close to you. Once that inspection is done, it should be possible for that to be electronically sent to RTA.

The CTP and payment for the rego can all be done on line. That should be the end of the problem as no label is now required on NSW vehicles.

In theory, to register a vehicle in your name you should have a drivers licence indicating you live in the same state.

If you are registering a vehicle in WA for the first time it needs to have an inspection, from memory its around $90 per inspection, if it fails inspection for any reason the fee needs to be paid again for re-inspection.

I wasn't sure either, because it appeared that the OP answered his own question.

Alright. I can get the inspection done from those sites or should I get a WA license? Not going back to NSW. Don't I need to be a resident in WA? (Need a Bill with address or similar?)

This page shows the requirements: http://www.transport.wa.gov.au/licensing/20665.asp

I would need a proof of WA residential address. I don't have that.
