I bought a PIAGGIO MP3 400 in October it had a Car number plate The seller said VicRoads - Leongatha gave him a hard time. I booked it in for a major service and a RWC INSPECTION up at Peter Stevens Dandenong the guys saw the number plate said that's odd , We have never seen a Car number plate on a scooter before I told them its a country VicRoads which has made a mistake. I will fix it and let you know when ive done it . So i went to VicRoads - Leongatha to transfer reg its a motor vehicle not a scooter so i payed the Transfer fee $40.70 .. I told Peter Stevens Dandenong , Piaggio australia the guys at MotoHeaven & a seller on Bikesales selling his MP3 .. they all said your Country Vic roads has got it wrong
PIAGGIO AUSTRALIA SAID If you look at the compliance plate it will say LC – This designates it as a motorcycle category and as complied.
You can show Vic roads the attached RVD form for this model which also shows LC category. If the vehicle’s ADR category is ‘LC’ and if the vehicle has an automatic transmission and a step through construction, it will assign the vehicle as a scooter.
So i went into Carlton Vic roads at first it was looking good then it all went to dust they said its a Motor Vehicle not a scooter its now under investigation ive been waiting 2 weeks
