Received a letter from the R T A NSW on friday, re heavy vehicle inspection changes(whats this got to do with me i thinks) All troopies registered as 11 seaters are now required to have additional inspections at an additional cost and are now classified as heavy veh/bus. There are lots of troopies out there that have their seats removed, so where do we all stand?? I lined up at the office with the other 150 odd customers on Saturday morning finally told that if you have the seats out and it is nolonger a 11 seater the classification of the vehicle needs to be changed before the next renewal. Now that involved the following
1. Obtain a engineers certificate re classification change (for me a 2 seater.
2. Obtain a Blue slip (NSW people know what i mean)
3. Your normal green slip etc

Blooby hell I'm unhappy about all this I wonder what they will change next...No bullbars in the city!!! I wonder what it costs for an engineers report???
HAPPY NEW YEAR (maybe)

"I lined up at the office with the other 150 odd customers on Saturday morning"

Good to see nothings changed with RTA. (Lined up at Vicroads the otherday, in and out in 10 mins for license!)

As for the issue with the car, This is going to make someoen lots of $... Seeing how many dozen troopys are out there modded.

Engineers Certs, are anything from $300 up.. EG To get wheel size changed from 33 to 35inch was going to cost me $300.
"The cost is all Government fees" <-- as told to me by the engineer.

I think that stinks... Some POS from the Gov was cut off by a troopy on their way to work one day, and thought, how can we screw them.. Thats the only reason it would make sense.

Time spent in the RTA depends on day of week and time of day you visit (as it would for VicRoads too). Spent 45 minutes in the local RTA on Saturday morning for wifes license renewal, but then I can get in there and out again in 10 minutes too at other times.

As for engineers certs, $300 for wheel size change! Geez, I'm glad I live in Sydney. I can get a cert for a wheel change done in my area (northern Sydney) for between $100 and $200 max.

You should always grab 2 tickets from that machine. That way, after you have been waiting half an hour, you can give the other ticket to that cute girl that just walked through the door and saw the shmucks sitting around. It would make her day, and she may just return the favour somehow. Worth a shot.~
