South Australian Motor Vehicle Registrations 1906 - 1927

We are currently working with the National Motor Museum to transcribe this research from hand typed paper pages to electronic format. This project will ensure that the work of George Brooks will be available to a wider audience and give family historians a glimpse into their family motoring history .

The records cover a period of 21 years from 1906 when motor vehicle registration commenced in South Australia. The data contained in this database consists of Car registration number, Registered Owners Name(s), Address (suburb/Town) and in many instances the vehicle model.
