Vehicles 25 years old or more

For cars which are 25 years old or more of any model can be imported, and there are no restrictions on previous accident history or minor modifications as long as it meets roadworthy and registration standards. An import approval application must be made with DOTARS, which J-Spec will assist with.

25 years old or more vehicles do require compliance however the regulations are nowhere near as strict as under SEVS, and the work can be done by anyone provided an engineer signs off on the compliance work. For a 25 years old ore more vehicle compliance typically costs around $1200 depending on the car and the state, and the car must meet the Australian Design Rules for its date of manufacture. This means that for example a 1975 built vehicle must meet the ADR's for 1975, which were fairly minimal and so compliance for such a car would tend to be easier and cheaper.
