RAWS

What is a RAW (Registered Automotive Workshop)?

A RAW is a Workshop that is especially licensed by the Federal Department of Transport and Regional Services (DoTaRS) to fit used import plates to complied imported used vehicles.

0810_crup_03_z+2009_harley_davidson_cvo_motorcycles+2009_cvo_softail_springerThe Registered Automotive Workshop Scheme (RAWS) allows for the importation and supply of used specialist or enthusiast vehicles to the market in Australia. Under this scheme only a RAW can import a used vehicle into Australia. RAWS arrangements do not apply for vehicles manufactured before 1 January 1989 or vehicles that are to be imported under the Personal Import Scheme. A RAW must comply with all Federal, State and Local Laws.

Import approval

Import approval Is required for all imported vehicles and bikes prior to 1989 or trailers, Off Road motorcycles, ATV’s or SSV’s and Race Vehicles only. Import Approvals allow 15 working days for approval . All Vehicles and Bikes 1989 to current year , Import Approval must be lodged through a Registered Automotive Workshop, RAWS.

Personial Import Vehicles

Conditions are stated in the application form available from any State transport office. The most important being that the vehicle was owned and registered for twelve months or more in the country of origin. Any year, make or model vehicle may be accepted under this scheme. This process may involve the allocation of a new 17 digit vin/chassis number by State Transport for vehicles 1989 onwards. A second plate is then requested. Once this is affixed to the vehicle, a roadworthy certificate can be issued by an approved Inspection Station, assuming safety checks have been cleared. This procedure is called LO3. The vehicle can then be registered following normal procedures.
