There is a transitional period to allow dealers time to understand their obligations under the amendments and to comply with the new form requirements.
The transitional period has been extended to 1 March 2018. After that date, forms 5 and 6 used by dealers must comply.
Changes to the Second-Hand Vehicle Dealers Regulations 2010 were made through the Second-hand Vehicle Dealers (Simplify No 2) Variation Regulations 2017.
Additional details that must be included in Forms 5 and 6 are:
• dealer handling fee
• ownership and odometer declaration
• signatures of the parties to the contract.
