Certificates of Modification and Modification Plates
Owners sometimes modify their vehicles to give them a distinctive appearance, to improve their performance, to add desired features, change the engine (alternate or replacement engines), suspension, or to add a long-range fuel tank. Others modify their vehicles so that they are better suited to a specialized purpose. Modified vehicles must comply with vehicle standards and guidelines, as set out by the Queensland Department of Transport, before a modification plate can be approved.
A modification plate can only be obtained from an authorised examiner.
Vehicle owners who wish to modify their vehicles need to follow the standards and guidelines that apply to the modification of vehicles for use on our roads. You can find these on the Queensland Transport website.
