Getting mod plates in Queensland is essential for operating your vehicle legally and for avoiding costly penalties. If you happen to have an older vehicle, however, the requirements for registration may be a bit different. In these instances, it is important to take your car to an Approved Inspection Station. Here, your auto will be reviewed by trained professionals and given a special safety certificate that attests to its compliance with local mandates for its year of manufacture. After you have received a safety certificate for your older car, you can then go to a customer service centre where you will be able to apply for registration. The registration process must be completed through the Department of Transport and Main Roads as there is no other organisation that can register your vehicle for legal road use in Queensland apart from this one.
