No Compliance L08 plate needed for QLD pre69 1Nov2014

See below form TMR website for QLD.

Simplified compliance process for pre-1989 imported vehicles

- Commences 1 November 2014

As part of the Queensland Government's commitment to reducing red tape and reduction, Transport and Main Roads has conducted a review into the certification requirements for pre-1989 imported light vehicles.

As a result of this review, the department has decided to align the certification requirements with the vehicle standards that a vehicle has to meet. This will mean that from 1 November 2014:

Year of manufacture Current requirement New requirement
Before 1969 Certification to LO8 No certification
Between 1969 and 1972 Certification to LO8 Certification to LO1
Between 1973 and 1988 Certification to LO1 Certification to LO1

Nope. Lo2 was replaced by Lo8 a couple of years ago, this means compliance process for pre 69 is a roadworthy and that is it. Sweet.

Do modified cars require certification from an engineer in QLD?

Nar man, some mods need engineer approval, some don't. If they are trying to cut down on red-tape. I doubt they would be making a song and dance about wheels.... Belts, brake upgrades and some engine conversions will still need appovals.

Seat belts that are bolted in the original spot dont need a engineer.....and some brake upgrades don't either.....all this is very inconsistent , depends where you go, and live

And if you get it wrong and don't get something complianced that needs it, you can be done under the hooning laws( not to mention insurance dramas if you have an accident) and nasty crap will come down on you. Still all in all any reduction in red tape is a win.
