Saw a car I quite like and drive and feels very good, only thing is the owner told me this car was used as a short period as a PTV vehicle (Uber).
He said he lost his job in March and couldn't find a job, so he applied to be a Uber driver, he is now back to his old job with a company car provided to him. So there is no need for this car.
When I asked what is a PTV he logged into his DOT-Direct and showed me, under the vehicle:
It has the following:
Last inspected date: 11/5/2020
I said I will think about it and get back to him.
So far I have checked the car is not owning any money, its under his name, his DOT-Direct matches everything on his driver license and also registration paper for this vehicle.
My question is:
What does the "Last inspected date 11/5/2020 mean? does that mean he had the vehicle inspected at the Licensing Centre in Perth and the vehicle has passed the inspection with no problems? Therefore, a PTV was granted?
The person looks genuine, he is upfront about the car's PTV status and he bought it up first during the conversation.
Assume the vehicle was inspected and passed the inspection on the 11th May 2020, does that mean it's pretty safe to go ahead to make the purchase?
Never experienced this before so I thought I check with you guys.
Oh, the registration paper before this one it has a class of 1A. This time it had a class of 3F.
Just remembered on the car display it said: Next Service Due in 13000km.
