    importing for off road use

    is it possible to import a car for non road use?

    example... buddy has a 10000 acre farm, he wants to import a couple of 4x4s to run around his farm, no plates or rego needed.

    is it possible to get a car brought in for him

    Rally / Race rego cars come in ALL THE TIME....

    How hard can it be to talk to an importer about getting a very specific "race" car in the country for you..

    You might have to have a CAMS license and provide proof that you're going to race it etc. Think there was a crack down a while back on punters bringing this kind of thing in

    http://www.j-spec.com.au/info/Race-rally-imports.php

    Under the Race/rally import rule there is no restriction on the model of car which can be imported or its condition (for example any modifications are ok).
    To be eligible the importer must be able to prove that they have entered race/rally events previously and they must hold a current national level CAMS license that exceeds level 2 (a level L2S or L2NS Cams license is usually not high enough to get race/rally import approval, unless you have a lot of past track history). If you do not meet these requirements you cannot bring in a car for race/rally use.

    Once in Australia race/rally imports can be used in any manner including stripping them for parts, however the chassis can never be complied or registered for normal road use.
    But I've seen import yards advertising cars as for sale for race / rally only, so how did they get them in?

    Just find someone with the right level licence and track history - import under their name, then "buy" it off them a week after it arrives....

    Friend of mine works in the industry says you can, obviously compliance not necessary but vehicle import approval still required. Shoot her an email to renee@tomkinsongl.com edit: tell her Justin referred you.
