    Default Interstate Unregistered driving permit?

    Anyone know what the process is for getting a unregistered permit for interstate ?
    Need to drive a car from NSW to VIC.
    Iv done this before when I picked up my RS5 from QLD but the dealership sorted it all for me.
    Not sure how to do it.
    I know I can get a VIC permit but it states only to be used within VIC.
    And not sure If I can even apply for a NSW permit without a NSW drivers license.
    Anyone know the process ?

    Yes you can i believe as i know someone in VIC who purchased a car in NSW & did exactly that.

    have a look at the Service NSW website & see what you can find.

    Maybe a ViC permit might be suffice.

    two problems. The VIC permit can only be used within VIC. and the NSW permit you need a NSW drivers license number.
    So you can understand why I'm confused.

    NSW permit states you can start in another state and end up in NSW.

    Maybe you can do the same with VIC.

    Why we have 7 different licence depts and sets of road rules is just crazy but that’s a whole different conversation.

    Im guessing car is currently unregistered?

    Otherwise drive down and hand plates in at VIC roads or mail back to Sydney

    Just asked mate who did it.

    “He never actually got a NSW permit as he couldn’t & just used a VIC permit. Didn’t get pulled up so he made it ok & was just going to try & explain his way out of it if he got pulled over by NSW police.”

    That was an old Nissan patrol.

    What car are you trying to move?
