Regulations are State or Territory based and depend on the area where the vehicles are used. You should check with your state registration body to check how the relevant legislation applies to each circumstance. Legislation regulations may even require Registration (perhaps conditional) when such vehicles are used on certain “privately owned land”. examples are (but are not limited to these situations): Golf Club car park or roadways in a golf course housing estate parking areas at hardware store etc. Public Liability insurance policies usually contain coverage re claims arising from use of unregistered vehicles – except where legislation/regulation requires them to be registered. *This e-advice attached sets out the legal position as to when/where “vehicles’’ should be registered.
