I realise yours is an ambulance but the seats in the rear of Cash In transit trucks(armoured cars) would be covered under the same rules as your rear seats so if they are legal then yours should be too ;)

The question of carrying more people than the compliance plate says has been canvassed in the forum over the last 12 months.
Ever since the 6x6s have become available.  Same applies to 4x4 GS or FFR.  The compliance plate rules.
In other words you'll find the 6x6 compliance will say three in the cab.  That's it.
Beyond that you'll need an engineer inspection plate to cover anyone in the back and don't even think of mounting the personnel seated sideways.
So lotsa luck.

yep compliance is for 3 but the ambo has a fourth rearward facing seat in the back between the stretchers so it should not be to hard to have complianced the fold down stretchers in other states can stay but not be used when veh in being driven :)

The rear facing seat should qualify.  should also have suitable seatbelts as well.
I can't believe the angst from State to State.  Or are people just making it hard.

Its interesting, the drop leg stretchers mentioned in another thread, manufactured by DHS are actually ADR compliant.  They are fitted with retractable 4 point harnesses for the patient and the floor mechanism is compliant with the standards for restraint anchorages. 

The rear facing seat is also ADR compliant in NSW Ambulance Service vehicles, so one wonders why similar seats in the 6x6 Perentie ambulances wouldn't comply in the NT?

got my 6x6 ambulance registered in Victoria yesterday. 

Registered as a 3 seater as per the compliance plate even though there are only 2 seats in the front.  The 'roadworthy guy asked me how many I wanted', I said '3 in accordance with the plate' to avoid any hassles

On the VicRoads web page it talks about the registration costs for heavy vehicles (I believe these are standardised nationally).  A couple of pages down it says that a 3 axle vehicle with two axles less than 1 meter apart counts as a 2 axle, 4 as 3 etc)  The local guy knew nothing about this and could not get an answer from Head Office.  After many attempted phone calls he gave up and registered it as '2 axle' saving me many hundreds of $. :D

He also had to load all the data onto the 'National Database' as it had not been loaded for these Vin numbers - that had meant a few days delay from last week. (does this apply to all Perentes or just 6x6?  or just mine?)

Quite some messing around with the registration people (VicRoads) but the Roadworth Check (RWC) went quite well - only a slightly loose prop-shaft, a cracked lens and a praised lens (I swapped the lenses with two from inside the rear module).

I'm right for now - just need to decide next year whether to get another RWC and transfer it to Club Plates or to keep it registered as a truck (its 25th birthday is in September)

all good really :D

Congrats, Richard.
That is very interesting news about the axles, will check the NCOP about that.
Might help a lot of people.
Glad to hear it all went fairly smoothly.

&#(@!!!!!

The same also applies in NSW!! See the very bottom of page 6 of the NSW Form:

http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/publicationsstatisticsforms/downloads/45070561e.pdf

Knowing this would have saved me over $320, the difference in rego for a 2 axle vs 3 axle truck.

I'm going to see if this can be amended at the RTA, at the very best to refund me the difference, at the very least to save me paying the higher amount each renewal.

For others, here the various State's pages:

http://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/Home/Registration/FeesFormsAndFAQs/Fees/HeavyVehicleFees.htm
http://www.tmr.qld.gov.au/Registration/Registering-vehicles/Registration-codes-for-heavy-vehicles.aspx
http://www.legislation.sa.gov.au/LZ/C/R/MOTOR%20VEHICLES%20(NATIONAL%20HEAVY%20VEHICLES%20REGISTRATION%20FEES)%20REGULATIONS%202008/2010.06.09_(2008.06.05)/2008.69.UN.PDF

ACT, WA and NT have not clearly spelt out their rules, but as it relates to the "National Heavy Vehicle charges", I would expect the classifying of categories to be standardised nationwide.

Grr, off to RTA!

I am looking at transferring my QLD rego to WA rego now I am here.

Biggest challenge is that due to not owning it fo a 12 month period it will need an inspection. If owned and registered for 12 months you do not need the inspection and it is just a plate swap and paper transfer.

I  have two choices, wait 12 months and just do it the easy way, or go through another inspection, having just got through it in QLD.

Are there any hints from anyone in WA that have made the change or registered after inspection.

Do I heed to get an imobiliser, key locks for the doors etc ???? any help appreciated from WA.
Thanks Phil

Gday Phil, No problems here in WA. I went to Hosts autos in Northam. No immobiliser needed if over 25 years old. No ignition key needed. Doors don't need to be lockable. The car just has to be roadworthy. Seeya. Paul.

Sweet thanks for that Paul.

I think I had hosts do some stuff on an old ambulance I had when I was working in Northam a few years back.  I might go pay them a visit.

Thanks again
