Buy a vehicle (transfer licence)

You must advise the Department within 14 days of purchasing a licence vehicle. Failure to do so may result in a penalty.

As the buyer or seller you have the choice of transferring the vehicle online using DoTDirect or by submitting a form.

Option A: Transfer a vehicle via your online account

DoTDirect logo

DoTDirect is a suite of applications and tools that are designed to make your life easier by letting you do your licence transactions online.

  • Customers with DoTDirect online accounts can conveniently transfer vehicles online.
  • You can even do it on your mobile phone while buying a vehicle.

Online vehicle transfers are available to individuals and all the information you need to transfer a vehicle into your name is the seller's surname and the vehicle plate number.

Some vehicles cannot be transferred online. These include vehicles that are:

  • Part of a court order or deceased estate.
  • To be jointly owned.
  • Being transferred between spouses or de facto partners.
  • Heavy vehicles.
  • Issued with optional plates.

If you submit your transfer online, a transfer form is not required by the Department, however you may wish to obtain proof of purchase documents for your own records.

Option B: Transfer a vehicle via a form

If your vehicle cannot be transferred online, it can only be transferred by submitting a transfer form (Notification of change of ownership (Form MR9). Please complete the following process.

  Information for purchaser (buyer)

You must advise DOT within 14 days of purchasing a licence vehicle. Failure to do so may result in a penalty.

Note:

  • If you submit your transfer online, a transfer form is not required by the Department, however you may wish to obtain proof of purchase documents for your own records.
  • The buyer and seller do not have to transfer the vehicle in the same way (for example, the seller could transfer it online and the purchaser could submit the transfer form).
  • If a transfer invoice has been issued in an incorrect name (excluding a spelling error), you must contact the seller and request a replacement transfer notice or written notification that an error has been made.
  • If you are unable to contact the seller to obtain a replacement transfer notice, a statutory declaration advising that the original notice was incorrect, and can be accepted as an alternative. Proof of identification will be required to effect the changes.
  • If the seller cannot be located, you can complete a statutory declaration vehicle ownership (VL50) form.
  • When we have conducted the relevant vehicle checks, we will contact you within 21 days to advise you of the result. If the transfer is approved, you will be sent an invoice for the vehicle licence duty and transfer fee.
  • If the vehicle being transferred is a farm tractor or tractor plant, the Application for farm vehicle concession (VL39) form is the only form required. This form includes a declaration of vehicle ownership. No further declarations or checks are required.
  • A completed 'Application to Licence or a Vehicle or Transfer a Vehicle Licence' (VL12) form is acceptable as proof of ownership for a registered motor vehicle dealer.

  Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR)

Man driving a car

To find out if your vehicle is listed on the Written-Off Vehicle Register or if the car you are buying has money owing on it, check out PPSR online.

To make a PPSR enquiry, you will only need to provide the chassis or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). Note that there will be no provision for searching or registering an interest by plate or engine number on the PPS Register.

  • PPSR online.
  • Telephone PPSR on 1300 007 777.
  • PPSR online is administered by the Registrar of Personal Property Securities.

PPSR can tell you whether a vehicle, boat or farm machinery has money owing on it (encumbered) before making a purchase. This is important because a third party (e.g. a bank or finance company) may be able to repossess the vehicle you have purchased due to an encumbrance.

A search of the PPS Register will also create a request for vehicle information from the National Exchange of Vehicle and Driver Information System - NEVDIS.  Depending on the information NEVDIS holds, this will include written-off and stolen status information (if applicable) in addition to make, model, colour and other information.

  Fees and charges associated with a change of ownership

Vehicle licence duty is a tax paid to the Office of State Revenue on establishing or transferring a vehicle licence. It is charged at a percentage rate of the dutiable value of a vehicle. Driver and Vehicle Services and associated regional Agents act as an agent for the Office of State Revenue when collecting this tax.

Transfer Fee is a fee that represents a cost recovery for the administration of the licensing system when a change of ownership is processed.

Where a vehicle licence is transferred to a new owner it may be necessary to change the insurance class of a vehicle. Examples include vehicles licensed with a concession that attract a reduced Motor Injury Insurance (MII) rate i.e. veteran/vintage vehicles, farm vehicles, ambulances or vehicles previously used as a taxi, omnibus or hire vehicle.

Some clients and vehicles may be exempt from some or all of these charges. Please refer to Concessions for more information.

  Vehicle licence duty calculator (2016/2017)

Driver and Vehicle Services is required by the Duties Act 2008 to collect vehicle licence duty when a vehicle is licensed or its licence is transferred.

Note:

Any caravan defined as 'a trailer (including a camper trailer) permanently fitted for human habitation in the course of a journey' is exempt from the payment of Vehicle Licence Duty.

Fees applicable as of 1 July 2016

To determine the total vehicle licence duty payable for a particular type of vehicle:

  1. Select classification of vehicle (light vehicle, used/new, OR heavy vehicle, used/new).
  2. Enter the "Dutiable value" of the vehicle (rounded up to the nearest dollar) in the field below, please don't include a comma.
  3. Click on the "Calculate Fee Payable" button. The total fee payable will be displayed below.

Note:

GVM stands for Gross Vehicle Mass, it is;

  • The tare/mass weight of a vehicle plus load.
  • Determined by the vehicle manufacturer as the maximum weight that the vehicle can carry.
  • A figure set by the manufacturer and is stamped on the compliance plate of the vehicle (sometimes referred to as GVW or Gross Vehicle Weight).

  Step 1: Complete the vehicle licence transfer form with the seller

You will need to complete a Notification of change of ownership (Form MR9) with the seller as you both need to sign the form.

The seller is required to submit the seller's copy (green) to us within 7 days and give the Purchaser's copy (red) to you.

Note: If you choose to download a copy of the vehicle transfer form it will not be carbonated. The sellers copy and the purchasers copy must both be completed and signed by you and the seller.

LBU_F_VL_MR9_VehicleTransfer.pdf icon Notification of change of vehicle ownership (Form MR9) Kb

  Step 2: Obtain licence papers and immobiliser information

You (the purchaser) are responsible for ensuring that a Government approved immobiliser is fitted to the vehicle. We therefore recommend you ask the seller if an immobiliser is fitted and if so obtain as many details as you can (e.g. type, date fitted).

Please refer to our web page on immobilisers for detailed information on what vehicles require an immobiliser, exemptions, 'approved' immobilisers and how to get one fitted.

  Step 3: Complete the declaration form, if not exempt (Form VL191)

As discussed above, you are responsible for ensuring a Government approved immobiliser is fitted to the vehicle (if not exempt).

If an approved immobiliser has been fitted

You must complete the 'Fitment of immobiliser' declaration form below and submit it with your vehicle licence transfer form.

If an approved immobiliser is not fitted, or you are not sure

You must have an approved immobiliser fitted before you can transfer the vehicle (unless the vehicle is exempt).

If you are unsure if the vehicle is fitted with an immobiliser we recommend you take the vehicle to an auto electrician or mechanic. Refer to Yellow Pages (see below, search keyword 'immobilisers').

For more information refer to our web page on immobilisers.

Opens in a new window Yellow Pages online

  Step 4: Submit forms and proof of identification

To save time in lengthy queues we recommend you post the forms and supporting documents to us. If required you can attend a Driver and Vehicle Services Centre or regional Agent.

You will need to submit the following documents:

  • 'Purchaser's copy' of the vehicle transfer Form (MR9)
  • 'Fitment of immobiliser' declaration form (if possible)
  • Proof of identification and age - a fact sheet on accepted proof of identity documents is provided below (relevant to individuals only).

Garaging Address (base of operation):

  • In accordance with section 5 of the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Act 2012, vehicles cannot be licensed in Western Australia if they are garaged in another state.
  • You may be required to produce documentary proof of this.

Note:

If the vehicle purchased will be jointly owned, one of the owners will need to be nominated as the licence holder. Please complete the 'Proof of Identity - Nominated Owner/Vehicle Licence Holder' Form VL186 (provided below) and send it with your application to transfer vehicle ownership.

  Step 5: Pay vehicle licence duty and transfer fee

Upon receipt of the vehicle transfer form and declaration from you that an approved immobiliser has been fitted to the vehicle (if not exempt), we will invoice you for the vehicle licence duty and transfer fee, plus any upgrade of the licence fee (if a concession was previously applied).

You must pay the invoice within 28 days of it being issued or a penalty will apply. View your payment options.
