Getting my bike on the road in NSW

Hi,

We are waiting for our UK registered bikes to arrive in Sydney.

Any one got any info on getting our bikes through the rego, green slip and inspection stuff.

The police and the Rego people don't have a bloody clue in Dee why !!


Any advice would be great

Cheers

Paul

Hello Roger,

Yep it does say it all - thing is the RMS and the police are telling conflicting tales !!

We think we will just print off the page you sent to show road side if pulled - get green slip or some insurance and see how we go.

Cheers

Paul

Most coppers wont know about that part of the legislation, there are so few overseas registered vehicles in Australia. Carrying a copy of the webpage is certainly useful and has been suggested by a couple of riders on here before. NSW is by far the easiest State to deal with. If you back up a few threads you'll see a reply from the Victorian Roads and Traffic Authority about recognising the NSW overseas vehicles arrangements, I'm still waiting for Queensland to reply (5 months?).


Its one of the problems of having a federation of States in that we can have different laws - much like the EU and USA.


You maybe wasting your time trying to buy third party insurance as this is always linked to registration, but I doubt there is an insurance company that wont take money - whether they pay out is another matter.
