Can I sell my car without a roadworthy certificate or registration?

Con Con

The answer depends on the state or territory you are in.

In some states, such as Victoria, a private seller can sell a registered vehicle without a roadworthy certificate provided that they remove the car's number plates and return them to VicRoads before the sale. The registration can be suspended until the buyer obtains a roadworthy certificate.

In other states, sellers are required to provide a roadworthy certificate at the time of sale.

It’s the same with registration. For example, in Victoria, it is not mandatory for an unregistered car to have a roadworthy certificate before being sold - it is the buyer's responsibility to get the car registered.

However, in New South Wales, a car cannot be sold without registration.

It's important to check the specific requirements and regulations of your state or territory before selling your car, to ensure that you comply with the law.
