Court actions

Frankston Magistrates’ Court has fined former Seaford motor car trader, Robsco Nominees Pty Ltd, for breaches of Victoria’s motor car trading law.

The court fined Robsco, which was a licensed motor car trader (LMCT) from 21 November 2002 to late 2012, $2,500 without conviction for:

  • selling a car by consignment
  • failing to include the odometer reading and roadworthy certificate details of two other cars in its dealings book
  • failing to display a notice containing the LMCT number.

The Motor Car Traders Act 1986 prohibits consignment selling. This includes offering to sell or selling a car as an agent for a person who is not a LMCT.

The court found Robsco offered to sell a car for a consumer and did not offer to buy it outright. The consumer later saw the car on display at Robsco’s premises and learned that it was sold to a wholesaler in late 2012. She had not signed any documentation to transfer the vehicle to the wholesaler.

The court also ordered Robsco to pay $1000 in costs.
