Light vehicles entering Western Australia from interstate will no longer face mandatory vehicle examinations.
The Minister responsible for licensing, Ljiljanna Ravlich said a gazetted notice took effect this week and would benefit many people who were travelling to WA to take advantage of the strong economy and record employment opportunities.
“This decision will mean that motor cars, motorbikes, light commercial vehicles, trailers and caravans will be exempt from inspection prior to licensing in WA,” she said
“WA is the engine room of the national economy and this decision will help cut the red tape facing those coming to join in our success.”
“There are good practical reasons to move towards a standardised licensing system across Australia and the Department for Planning and Infrastructure is continuing to work with all Australian States and Territories to develop a more uniform approach to driver and vehicle licensing,” she said.
“The ultimate objective is the creation of a simple, singular system whereby any Australian registration or licence is acceptable in all States and Territories."
