Buying and selling

I have sold a vehicle

If you sell or dispose of a vehicle, you must notify Service SA. If you don’t, you could be held responsible for parking and other driving offences until the new owner transfers the registration into their name.

What happens next

If the vehicle is registered, the buyer has 14 days to lodge the application to transfer registration.

Other options

Notify in person or by post

When selling a vehicle you can also submit the completed disposal notice in person or by post:

If you are lodging the disposal notice in person or by post, the back of the vehicle’s registration details certificate must be completed by both the seller and the buyer. The disposal notice is the responsibility of the seller. The application for transfer of registration is the responsibility of the buyer.

If you, as the seller, don't intend to transfer the registration, do not sign the transfer papers. If you wish to cancel the registration, you must do so within seven days.
