Have you already modified your vehicle to suit the way you like to drive? If so, you will need to obtain what is known as a Modification Plate.

This is a Queensland Department of Transport requirement and ensures that the modification to your vehicle has been done in a safe and roadworthy manner, protecting you and your family against any possible harm.

There are two types of modification schemes each with their own list of modification codes;

  • Light vehicles modification scheme
  • Commercial vehicles modification scheme

Example;
A customer might change the seating capacity in a vehicle from a two seater to a 3 seater, so a modification plate will be required to assure that the change has been done safely and accurately.

The vehicle will be inspected and approved to safety and roadworthy standards. The qualified examiner will then be able to issue the modification plate.

A modification plate can only be obtained by an authorised examiner. For a mechanic to apply for a Modification Plate license, he/she must be qualified as a mechanic for no less than 10 years and put through a strenuous examination process.
