Vic Roads no longer supply us with registration labels (Except Federal Interstate vehicles and CPS permits.)
Sure we can go online and check if the vehicle is registered before we drive it, but my beef is with the weights that were on the labels. When the Tare and Gross weights were on the labels a simple calculation gave you the legal carrying capacity. B) B) I'm currently towing someone elses trailer and whilst a vic roads website search tells me the gross weights for the axles etc the tare weight is a mystery.
What says you?

Lorry is registered here in NSW and is required to have a label on him. Problem is now they have made them some shitty they break down in the sun light and fall off in pieces. The sooner they get rid of them on trucks the better. Best way to have the details at hand is to have them listed on paper and in the glove box or go back to having the details displayed on the cab or fuel tank again and the same for the trailers.

This I can help you with

If there's room on the trailer for the load to fit
Load it, chuck a telecom rope over and send it driver

If for some reason the load dont quit fit just do one of two things

Chuck it on and pretend it fits
Or chuck it on and tie yesterdays jocks in the drivers side leading

There is of course option 'C' chuck the load on and sneak down the back roads on a dark and preferably foggy night

As to the weights situation, if it fits/almost fits or can be carried on or almost on the said vehicle, send it and its all good
Obviously the trailer is built for it or the load wouldn't fit or almost fit

When this started (think we were close to the first with this BS) in West Aus we were told to carry the license papers with us if heading East, to be able to prove we were in fact registered.

Awesome. Makes sense to me. Seems to me I may have been there many moons ago.
