    Yep, but the vehicle is still illegal for a p-plater to drive. You might have some defence if it showed up on the site, but the 130kw/tonne is codified in the legislation.

    If You choose to use the VicRoads’ List of Cars Approved for Probationary Drivers You do so strictly at Your own risk and You indemnify each of VicRoads and Red Book for any loss or damage You may incur as a result of the use of the VicRoads’ List of Cars Approved for Probationary Drivers or the performance, or value or otherwise of a vehicle listed.

    Earlier in the thread, someone mentioned something about "fancy maths". It's all beyond me. Only 0.3kw above the limit sucks. Probably hurts sales as people want a car that their child can still drive when they get their P-plates.

    A mate once told me that if you change your address to a family member in WA, get a WA license, then change the address back to your place in VIC a couple of months later, the WA P-plate restrictions apply to you, not the Victorian. Can't find anything like it online and sounds like crap to me. Does anyone have any fact?

    Without knowing for sure, sounds a bit iffy to me. I have friends in ACT (where the rules are slightly different to NSW) and they've always operated by the "need to follow the rules of the state you're driving in" - which kinda makes sense to me.

    Does that mean WA is full of rubbish, polluting, un-roadworthy shiteboxes like QLD?
