It Passed

If you are selling your tailer/ horse float the completed Safety Certificate blue card copy must be displayed in the drawbar or window if the trailer/ horse float is registered at time of sale. If you are transferring registration from Queensland registration to a different name, you will need to complete a Transfer of Vehicle Registration Form. If the vehicle is unregistered or in another State registration, then you will need to complete a Vehicle Registration Form.

It is by law that if the trailer/ horse float is registered and being sold, that the seller must supply a Safety Certificate/ Roadworthy. A Safety Certificate/ Roadworthys is valid for 2 months or 2000kms (whichever comes first) when selling a trailer/ horse float privately. If a dealer is selling a second hand trailer/ horse float then the Safety Certificate/ Roadworthy is valid for 3 months or 1000kms (whichever comes first). If the vehicle is unregistered then the seller is not required to provide a Safety Certificate/ Roadworthy.
