Hello, recently purchased a caravan currently registered in NSW. Picking up in a week to bring back to SA - does anyone know the procedure. Rego runs out the day we collect it??? The guy we are purchasing it from says we need to get a permit to bring it home, thought we could register in NSW and then transfer rego once back in SA, any help would be greatly appreciated.

That happened to me several years ago with a vehicle. It expired the day we came back to SA....a Friday. I went straight to the Motor Reg place at Berri in mid afternoon and sorted it out. Worst part was I had to take it to the Police Station so they could do a computer check to ensure it was showing as stolen etc.

I paid the cops for their certificate and then got back to Motor Reg office just in time to get the rego sorted out.

Then, in January 2015 I bought the Silverado from Qld. It's rego there had expired and I had to get a permit from Qld DoMV to drive it to SA over a weekend. They charged me a specific amount per day, so I only got the permit until the Monday.

That worked out okay.

In your case I reckon I'd be dropping into the NSW rego place to get a permit....unless you can get to Berri before close of business on the expiry day.

Good luck,

Roachie

Once back in Adelaide you will need to take it to Regency Park for an inspection.
You need to book for that, so it will require another permit to get there.

Hmmm, that hasn't been my experience....and I've brought a total of 6 vehicles (3x 4wd and 3x trailers) from interstate to SA over the past 14 years. It's always just been a case of going to the cop shop to get the stolen vehicles check done, then go to local motor reg office (aka "Service SA".....what a misnomer if ever there was one!!!), whereupon they will take your money and issue new plate/s.

Maybe it's different if you live in the greater Adelaide area??? I live in a country town 150klm from the big smoke.

I just picked a camp trailer from NSW, the dealer gave me the forms to get a permit, went to the local reg office in nsw and took it out for 28 days, cost about $35. When i got it back to SA I had to get a blue form, the rego office in Berri gave me a list of business that could do it, cost another $35, then took blue form back to rego office to get it registed for 12 months.
Easy process

I have read that it is a lot dearer to register a caravan in NSW than in SA, worth checking !

You can cause insurance issues if you try scam registration!

Remember that with a permit it you have to take the most direct route home,

Hi Goldlink...

All you need to know is on the RMS New South Wales website, always best to go to the source on these matters.

In summary, the following applies, but I’ll leave you to read the full text.
