Don't think you can get a exemption on high powered vehicles in your state. The rules are there and thats that

move to NSW :)
the rule is still in NSW as well... only way around it here is to prove your work involves driving high powered vehicles or your main family car that you need to drive is v8/turbo... or (i dont condone this and it probably wont work) get your rego papers to say you bought the car before the law came in? they couldnt force people to get rid of their cars so those select people got an exemption... im allowed to drive v8/ turbos :thumbsup: good old dad and his truck!!

Why not wait until you're old enough like everyone else?

I can't believe what crap people come up with. Like really. Do you think the girl behind the counter is going to say "oh yeah no problem!"? Like really. Who makes the laws?

what sort of car is it? my nephew couldnt wait till he was off his p's, he car is highly unroadworthy he decided to put a nice red 308 in his VK commodore, i thought you were able to drive a 308 commodore? maybe im wrong, but my nephew got pulled over heaps of times, mostly because of air pollution and they pop the bonnet and tell him he has no pollution gear and **** like that, i guess depends on what sort of police are in your town, otherwise not sure there is anyway of getting through to them
