Lodge a disposal notice
If you sell or dispose of a vehicle, you must notify Service SA. If you don’t, you could be held responsible for parking and other driving offences until the new owner transfers the registration into their name.
If you want to cancel the registration rather than transfer it to the new owner, you must also do this within seven days.
