Paramount Automotive Performance can modify and approve all modifications issuing Modification Plate & Certificate within the Queensland guidelines.
The responsibility for ensuring that a vehicle is roadworthy rests with its owner.
It is the owners responsibility to ensure that:
• The vehicle in its modified form continues to comply with the Road transport regulations and the Australian Design Rules (ADR) and;
• That the modifications do not reduce the strength, controllability or level of safety of the vehicle.
A modified vehicle must continue to comply with all applicable ADRs.
Any person considering substantial modifications to their vehicle is advised to engage the services of an approved persons who is experienced in vehicle design, standards & construction requirements, and is recognised by the department of transport for the purpose of issuing modification plate certificates.
Owners are advised that as part of the process of certification, an approved persons from Paramount Automotive Performance will need to inspect and in some cases, require tests to be carried out on components that in the finished vehicle will be inaccessible or not fully visible. Owners should therefore contact our office at the earliest possible stage (preferable before commencing the modification) and , arrange for the approved persons to inspect the vehicle at appropriate stages throughout the modification process.
A Simplified method for obtaining approvals
While there are some modifications which still require approval from Queensland Transport, most approvals can be obtained through the Approved Persons Scheme which operated throughout Queensland. This scheme allows quick and convenient evaluations and approvals.
