- New owner responsibilities: buyer
Buying and selling a used vehicle: registration
When buying or selling a vehicle, you must follow the proper processes to notify the Motor Vehicle Registry (MVR) that the ownership of the vehicle has been changed.
This notification is called a notice of disposal.
The MVR will then update its records to register the new owner of the vehicle.
This ensures that any liabilities - such as traffic fines or offences - are the responsibility of the right person.
The seller will no longer be responsible for any traffic infringement notices that are issued for the vehicle after the sale.
