South Australian Motor Vehicle Registration 1906 - 1927
Family History - Index Overview

Have you ever wondered what type of car your ancestor drove if they were lucky enough to own one? Over many years Mr George Brooks, a Motoring Historian worked to collate South Australian Registrations along with vehicle details. He donated theses records to the National Motor Museum.  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 George’s hard work 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.
