It’s not easy to find a car with a really low budget. Once you get pass the car, inspect it, test drive it, you gotta make sure you pass the RWC (Road Worthy Certificate) to register it. If you don’t pass that, you can’t get your car registered. It’s pretty much like JPJ and Puspakom back at home.
For a really low budget car, in Victoria, you gotta find one with already existing registration or like people here say – rego. That’s because to register an unregistered car will set you back between $500-$700 depending on the market value of that car. To transfer your name on the car rego is cheaper.
The RWC is really what makes it come to play. You don’t know for certain what needs to be repaired for the car. It might be as trivial as changing the wipers. But what if it’s something structural? The chassis, rust spots, etc. Suspension, brakes, probably the muffler, cv joint, etc. That’s what I’m worried about. Buying a cheap car only to spend more on it later.
Nevertheless, I’m keeping my hopes up. There’s gotta be some honest lad just trying to get rid of his perfectly running car. There’s just gotta be one.
