excludes -vehicles with diplomatic and consular plates, vehicles belonging to the defence forces, recreation vehicles such as trail bikes and sand dune buggies (in those States where registration is not required), and unpowered vehicles such as caravans and trailers, trailed plant and equipment.

Note: Supertable has a limitation on the number of cells that can be generated. For this reason, tables cross-classifying many items may not produce. This is an issue for the larger states and users may need to subset the inquiry to achieve results.
