Driveaway Unit

"Driveaway Unit" means a combination of a motor vehicle that moves on its own motive power and one or more vehicles that are:

  • entirely carried;
  • pulled in such a manner that all of the wheels of the vehicles are on the highway; or
  • partly towed and partly carried.

The term "Driveaway Unit" also includes the motor vehicle that moves on its own motive power even when it is not in combination with other vehicles.

In order to obtain this variable plate, the insured must have a valid driveaway operation. The plate itself is transferable from one vehicle to another (similar to a Dealer Plate).

These units must be unladen (i.e. the only goods which can be carried are the units themselves which are part of the driveaway unit).
