Motor vehicle registration transfer

Overview

If you acquire, or become the operator of, an ACT registered vehicle, or trailer, you must apply to transfer the vehicle’s registration within 14 days. In addition to the prescribed registration fees, a transfer fee is payable. A late transfer penalty fee will be charged for applications made after the 14 days.

If you aren’t sure what you need to do to transfer the vehicle, use the Registration information and transfer guide to assess what paperwork, inspections, fees and/or any additional requirements you will require.

Access Canberra must confirm your identity prior to completing this transaction. If you do not hold, or cannot produce, your ACT Driver Licence, you may be required to provide full proof of identity and/or residency. Further information about identity requirements can be found on the proof of identity and residency page.

If you wish to add a secondary operator to a registration you will be required to provide proof of Identity/Residency for both operators. If both persons are not present for the transaction, an authority to act as an agent form (PDF 156KB) will need to be completed authorising the vehicle to be registered into the person’s name that is not present.

If you wish to register the vehicle into an organisational name (e.g. company or charity) you will be required to provide a company certificate and authorisation from a director to allowing the transaction to be performed.

Buying an ACT registered motor vehicle

All vehicles up to 4.5 tonnes and more than six years old, and all imported vehicles currently registered in the ACT with green or yellow compliance plates need to be inspected to ensure they are roadworthy before the registration transfer can be completed. This can be done at the Access Canberra Motor Vehicle Inspection Station at Hume or by an authorised examiner in the ACT.

All imported vehicles with a magenta (purple) compliance plate whether from the ACT or another jurisdiction must be inspected at the Access Canberra Motor Vehicle Inspection Station at Hume.

All imported vehicles from another jurisdiction to be established in the ACT with green or yellow compliance plates must be inspected at the Access Canberra Motor Vehicle Inspection Station at Hume.

All imported and currently un-registered ACT vehicles with green or yellow compliance plates must be inspected at the Access Canberra Motor Vehicle Inspection Station at Hume.

For further information about booking an inspection refer to the Motor vehicle inspections page.

If the vehicle purchased has had a concession applied to the current registration period by the previous operator, you may be required to pay pro-rata registration fees. Payment of the pro-rata registration fees will be required for this period beginning on the date you acquired the vehicle

GitHub – udacity/CarND-Vehicle-Detection: Vehicle Detection Project

Udacity - Self-Driving Car NanoDegree

In this project, your goal is to write a software pipeline to detect vehicles in a video (start with the test_video.mp4 and later implement on full project_video.mp4), but the main output or product we want you to create is a detailed writeup of the project. Check out the writeup template for this project and use it as a starting point for creating your own writeup.

Creating a great writeup:

A great writeup should include the rubric points as well as your description of how you addressed each point. You should include a detailed description of the code used in each step (with line-number references and code snippets where necessary), and links to other supporting documents or external references. You should include images in your writeup to demonstrate how your code works with examples.

All that said, please be concise! We’re not looking for you to write a book here, just a brief description of how you passed each rubric point, and references to the relevant code :).

You can submit your writeup in markdown or use another method and submit a pdf instead.

The Project

The goals / steps of this project are the following:

  • Perform a Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) feature extraction on a labeled training set of images and train a classifier Linear SVM classifier
  • Optionally, you can also apply a color transform and append binned color features, as well as histograms of color, to your HOG feature vector.
  • Note: for those first two steps don’t forget to normalize your features and randomize a selection for training and testing.
  • Implement a sliding-window technique and use your trained classifier to search for vehicles in images.
  • Run your pipeline on a video stream (start with the test_video.mp4 and later implement on full project_video.mp4) and create a heat map of recurring detections frame by frame to reject outliers and follow detected vehicles.
  • Estimate a bounding box for vehicles detected.

Here are links to the labeled data for vehicle and non-vehicle examples to train your classifier. These example images come from a combination of the GTI vehicle image database, the KITTI vision benchmark suite, and examples extracted from the project video itself. You are welcome and encouraged to take advantage of the recently released Udacity labeled dataset to augment your training data.

Some example images for testing your pipeline on single frames are located in the test_images folder. To help the reviewer examine your work, please save examples of the output from each stage of your pipeline in the folder called ouput_images, and include them in your writeup for the project by describing what each image shows. The video called project_video.mp4 is the video your pipeline should work well on.

As an optional challenge Once you have a working pipeline for vehicle detection, add in your lane-finding algorithm from the last project to do simultaneous lane-finding and vehicle detection!

If you’re feeling ambitious (also totally optional though), don’t stop there! We encourage you to go out and take video of

What’s Next? V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle) Communication With Connected Cars

There’s plenty of buzz around the connected car these days. The reason? The cloud.

There is a common refrain heard from nearly everyone gathered in Detroit to attend the World Congress on Intelligent Transport Systems this week: Connected cars will be the ultimate Internet of Things. They will collect and make sense of massive amounts of data from a huge array of sources. Cars will talk to other cars, exchanging data and alerting drivers to potential collisions. They’ll talk to sensors on signs on stoplights, bus stops, even ones embedded in the roads to get traffic updates and rerouting alerts. And they’ll communicate with your house, office, and smart devices, acting as an digital assistant, gathering information you need to go about your day. 

To do all that, they need the cloud. Because connected cars need data. Lots of data. Automobiles today are already packed with an impressive amount of processing power, because some 100 million lines of software code help run the typical luxury vehicle. But as connected cars before were sophisticated rolling wired devices, the amount of information flowing back and forth from them will skyrocket. And so they will demand for the cloud’s scalability and storage capabilities.  

The cloud also provides sophisticated processing and analytical capabilities. The cloud is the central hub where all of this quickly changing, far-flung information will pass through. It will provide the platform for making sense of this data. And the cloud is also the home for building and developing the apps and programs used by cars on the road.

What does that add up to practically? A car linked to the cloud, tapping into your apps, devices, and preferences will tailor the driving experience to you. When you’re getting ready to go out in the morning, your car will link to the cloud and check the weather, your to-do list from your calendar, and the traffic to help you plan your route for the day, rerouting you when you’re on your way if you get behind schedule or run into traffic. Or a rental car would recognize you when you slip into the driver’s seat and automatically adjusts to your preferences — changing the mirrors, giving you an update from your calendar of your schedule, and lining up your iTunes playlist.

Connected cars, meantime, will help cities and states cut down on congestion and improve safety. On the road, cars will talk to each other, automatically transmitting data such as speed, position, and direction, and send alerts to each other if a crash seems imminent. This future of vehicle-to-vehicle, or V2V communication, is already in the works, with the U.S. Department of Transportation announcing early this year that it plans to start taking steps to enable V2V communication.

At the same time, communities are mapping out ways to put connected cars at the center of more energy efficient, smarter traffic management systems. IBM conducted a smarter traffic pilot with the Dutch city of Eindhoven, demonstrating how the connected car automatically shares

Vehicle Classification Information – New York State Thruway

Vehicle Classification Information

Vehicle classification is based on the height of the vehicle over the first two axles and the total number of axles, including any towed vehicles or trailers.  Vehicles under 7 feet 6 inches in height are considered “LOW” (L).  Vehicles 7 feet 6 inches in height or greater are considered “HIGH” (H).

The total number of axles plus the height designation equals the vehicle class as shown in the table (Figure 1) below. The diagram (Figure 2) below shows approximate vehicle heights in relation to the toll booth. Diagram (Figure 3) below shows examples of axle counts on various vehicles.   Example: Most two-axle passenger vehicles are Class 2L.

Helpful information can also be found in the Frequently Asked Questions. (Discount applies to E-ZPassNY accounts only).

Vehicle History Reports

Last Modified: March 25, 2020 by Jeff Ostroff | Originally Published April 25, 2007

If you are in the market for a used car, you must get a Vehicle History Report AND have the car inspected by a certified mechanic on a lift. Do not buy a used car without these two very important pieces of information. Making an educated decision on a used car purchase can save you thousands of dollars. Don’t make a huge mistake. You have been warned!

1. Why You Need a Vehicle History Report

  • It gives you a window into the car’s past.
  • According to the US Government roughly a half million cars are sold with fraudulent odometer readings annually, costing used car buyers over a billion dollars. Our research indicates many more go unreported!
  • The Office of Odometer Fraud Investigations has reported a sharp increase in odometer fraud. Elevated used car prices coupled with a tight supply of low-mileage used cars, has made odometer fraud more profitable than ever.
  • Natural disasters such as Super Storm Sandy damaged over a quarter million cars! Many of these cars get cleaned up, rebuilt and put back on the market.

2. What is In a Vehicle History Report

A used car history report contains vehicle records including data from state DMV’s, auto auctions, manufacturers, car dealers, police reported accidents and repair shops. A history report may reveal more about that used car than the seller is willing to tell you.

AutoCheck clean

An AutoCheck Report can reveal:

  • Number of previous owners, when it was sold & what states it was sold in.
  • Total loss, flooded, rebuilt wreck & salvage titles
  • Accident data including airbag deployment
  • Potential odometer rollback fraud
  • Year, make, model, engine, location of manufacture and installed equipment
  • Check if the car has been turned in under the “Lemon Law”
  • Exclusive valuable auto auction data
  • Indication if vehicle has been certified used, leased, rental, fleet or government vehicle

To get a better feel for what is contained in a report, click here to view a sample report. You’ll be able to go through all of the sections and see how all of the valuable information is presented.

3. Beware of “Free” Vehicle History Reports

Don’t be fooled by empty reports that just give you generic data on a VIN. Some sites out there ask you a bunch of questions to make it seem like they need information to give you a complete report. Don’t be tricked by this tactic! A real history report doesn’t need to know what state you are in.

Some sites out there will really try to make you think they are gathering information by having spinning wheels and status bars waste a bunch of time. These displays are just an illusion. Any legitimate report will be pulled in seconds from information in a database.

No free report will give you the information that you really need. They might give you a lot of information in a slick format but it is not the important information
