My name is Shuo-Ting Hsu go by Sophia. Right now I am doing study abroad in Australia. I am study in Griffith University for spring semester in 2016. I stay in Sunnybank, Queensland and I bought a used car in here. That is more convenience for me to go to school, travel and supermarket to buy food and daily staffs. I would buy a car in there that is because I come with my twin younger sister and we need to go to school four days in a week. Each time take bus we should spent four dollars for each person so a week we should spend 32 dollars total that is over our a week’s oil money. One more reason is take bus is spend too much time, for example, I drive to school just need 10 minutes but take bus need 20 to 50 minutes because depend on which bus you take. I want to describe and teach everyone who want to buy car in Australia when you are come to here to do study abroad. You can use facebook to search “Brisbane”(depend on which area you want to go )and add some group that would show may information in there about rent places, sell car and others information. So you can use facebook to find used cars on there and car year range has 1990 to 2009 and price can be AUD 2000 to 6000.
If you buy a car first you should check whether the owner done RWC. In Queensland a roadworthy certificate is called a safety certificate. A safety certificate is needed when a registered light vehicle is offered for sale in Queensland, or when re-registering an unregistered vehicle. It confirms that a vehicle has passed a minimum safety standard inspection. This inspection covers the basics for the safe operation of the vehicle, such as:
· body rust or damage
Then go to Queensland Government office for transport services and just need to figure out some application form then would be done. And one more thing need to be careful is if you buy car in Queensland then you should sell your car in Queensland could not sell your car in Sydney or other places.
