ACT Vehicle Inspection Stations

Kerri_Encore 14 March 2012 62

Good morning.

I recently moved to the ACT and require my car to be inspected in order to receive ACT registration.

I am wondering if anybody knows of any registered inspection stations who turn a few blind eyes for very minor issues?

All comments are appreciated unless you tell me to get my car fixed.

Thank you and good evening.

Lucky you didn’t mention you drove 81 in an 80 zone once.

Hi, People of the ACT get angry over a bonafide question. Never knew what that camera on a tall mast was on Hindmarsh Drive. I drive how fast I like, as luckily I turn off to Tamar Street. Later my neighbour confirmed that the cameas take your average speed? I’m going to set up a roadside cafe before the second check point so people can stop and have refreshments and not get fined; thus being able to roll down the hill sans stress.

So you live in Red Hill, near a church and use the Tamar Street exit. I think you may live in Mugga Way. You’ve done very well for a new arrival, and I’m surprised you won’t spring for someone to fix your car. Will you be providing consultancy services at your refreshment stop/cafe? Baths? Goat burgers perhaps?

I recommend opening the café on the median strip in the centre, so traffic going both ways can use it.

I didn’t dislike you up until this comment… What a great way to show you care about your newly adopted community.

No don’t move on, this is a very amusing thread… 🙂
I don’t believe for a second the Kerri_Encore is a real person, esp as the language used goes from formal to informal to txt speak from post to post…

So anyway Kerri, about this cafe your going to set up… Will it be for east bound or west bound lanes?
Considering you live near the church I can see some advantages of building your bridge, I mean cafe for east bound lanes as it would be nice and close to where you live.

I’m also sure that if your only driving around the corner, you probably won’t be pinged driving your extremely roadworthy but unregistered (as no one would pass it with even minor things wrong) vehicle over that short distance. Unless of course the vehicle inspectors get wind of your cafe and simply look for the car always parked there.

Maybe just to be safe, and to ensure the vehicle safety inspectors know which car they need to keep a lookout for, you should post your current rego number up here.

Hi all. I still have 9 months Victorian registration for my vehicle. My cafe will be before the Dalrymple Street checkpoint. If I can get my cigarette lighter working, HENCE WHY I BEGUN THIS ARTICLE, the cafe will be in operation.
My language wafts between formal and informal due to reading other illegible articles on this website. Being from a different society I find this flavour of writing interesting. Yes, Flavour.

Hi All, Forgot to mention a roof rack is mis-aligned due to bathtub transportation. I am hereby enquiring with my new ACT friends; due to the nature of the defect; if I need to get the roof rack replaced. I appreciate your consultation. Thx.

Okay, you have had your fun. Move along now.

I withdraw the above comment, as you were.

Your English seems to be deteriorating at a rapid rate…you really should see someone about that. Perhaps AFP media?

Hi, would’ve thought language classes would’ve been the ideal option for English improvement. Thank you for your concerns.

Hi, Due to contrary belief I am serious. Being new to this country I am not sure on the procedures involved in transferring registration for vehicles etc. I am not a panel beater however a consultant. Thank you for all your accusations that this is apparently a bogus account. Came to Australia to escape political conflicts. Thx

You brought your car with you?

Just put the bathtub back on and reverse around the block a couple of times.

Regardless of major or minor issues, you will have to take your car through the Dickson Registry if you require to transfer an interstate vehicle to ACT rego. I have had to do this for a couple of cars in the past.

http://www.rego.act.gov.au/registrations/regobuyinginterstate.htm

Fear not, they will find something for you to fix no matter how good a condition you think its in.

Not quite sure about this currently, although I had to go to the Dickson inspection station as well in 2006 after buying a car in NSW.

http://www.rego.act.gov.au/assets/PDFs/Approved%20Inspection%20Stations.pdf says that you can go to any of the listed inspection stations for the interstate car inspection. Maybe things have changed? We’re progressive here in the ACT. It could happen?

I bet that anyone living in Red Hill going into the Dickson office and who fits the description of being dumb enough to ask on a public forum how to go about breaking the law, might get their car spontaneously looked at again.

I mean, nobody in TAMS reads this forum, after all.

Anybody who uses “Plz” deserves punishment of some sort.

You will be pleased to know that car registration (along with the use of indicators) are optional in the ACT.

Enjoy your time with us.

Bye now.
