I have had Darkie at home since the weekend before christmas.
He had his final Engineer check in Vic on the 20th of December and the Engineer said he would have the report to me before the New year, well that didn't happen, I didn't get it until the 4th of Jan.
Darkie then had to get a NSW Blue Slip (RWC) and they found that the Engineer had stuffed the Report. I then had to get the #@#@@##! Engineer to correct his stuff up and get it posted back up to me. It took him over a week from being told of his stuff up to get it in the mail.
I recieved the corrected report yesterday and Darkie recieved his crappy Cockroach plates first thing this morning.
It only took 4 weeks from the Engineers final inspection to get him registered.
I can now drive him legally to gods country on Monday where I will most likely go through the same process for QLD Rego. At least it won't take a month though :))

I must thank Al and Lyn for all their efforts to get Darkie to this stage including battling the bloody engineer from their end :))

Cheers Kev

Dave,

I have 12 months to change the plates but I will do it sooner rather than later as the cockroach plates don't look as good as Maroon on white plates that you get in Queensland LOL

Nice drop of rain you have had up there as well.

Cheers Kev

Kev


I would check up about the 12 months bit.

In most states the legislation is you have to change the rego over as soon as possible after permanent residents and within 3 months of residing in the state.

I take it you registered the vehicle for 12 months in NSW. When you register it in QLD you will be able to get a refund from NSW.

Kev,

90 days is correct along with your drivers licence is required to be changed in 90 days (in Qld) if you have moved to a permanent address.

For you info "pigs" is an acronym. It stands for:
Pride
Integrity
Guts
Superiority

That is for male police officers.

For female police officers "PIG" stands for:

Pretty
Intelligent
Girl

I will have been here 7 months by the time I change both regos. last time I had interstate rego and transferred it the buggers wouldn't refund the remaining 3 months so never again I'll just change it within the last month.

Lyn,

All I can say is never use that wanker again ;))
I don't care if he has been doing it for 20+ years he still doesn't know whether he is Arthur or Martha (and I thought he'd be a good one being called Kevin LOL)

Barry,

The way he has been blowing smoke you would think he has been laying a turd, but he is a little healthier now with a service and new filters all round.

Cheers Kev
