    Easy fix.

    Are ACT cars not written off like all nsw ones?

    Seems we will be going that way here,bloody insurers.

    Makes it impossible to fix a lightly damaged car and register.

  • If over 15 years old they are not classified as written off. FYI have a look at this link...some interesting info particularly: “The registered vehicle operator (or owner if the vehicle is not registered) can apply to the RTA for an authorisation to repair if the vehicle is in an “exempt vehicle category”, or is being kept by the same registered operator or owner, and able to be repaired to legislated standards. “Exempt vehicle categories” include high market value, hail damage, low production run, first or last in production run or model range, personally imported, individually constructed, inherited or owned for five years or more by a member of a recognised enthusiasts club for vehicles of that type.” So I guess if you’re a member of the Volvo club and you’ve owned your Volvo for more than 5 years, even if it’s under 15 years old and it’s deemed a write-from you might be able to petition for exemption in NSW...interesting!
