From http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/Registration/BuyingSelling/ Buying a vehicle When you buy or acquire a vehicle that is registered, you will need to transfer the registration into your name and lodge the relevant documents with VicRoads within 14 days. Generally, you will need to supply the following information to VicRoads: * Completed copy of the Vehicle Registration Transfer form * Roadworthy Certificate * Payment of Transfer fee and motor vehicle duty (unless exempt) The question is: What are the other steps required? such as when is the best time to hand over the payment to the seller? after form is submitted? go to the vicroad together?
