Short Term Unregistered Vehicle Permit - Tasmania


You will need this permit to drive an unregistered vehicle for a short period of time on public streets. This permit does not register the vehicle and the vehicle must be roadworthy. The duration of your permit will be the minimum number of days needed to complete your journey. This can be up to 28 days.

Situations where this approval may be needed include:

  • using personal transportation devices (e.g. segways) as a part of your tour business
  • moving an unregistered vehicle from one location to another
