After Customs clearance, the vehicle should be presented to a Lands Transport Authority (LTA) agent for inspection and a compliance audit for certification for registration.

The Customs value of privately imported new or used motor vehicles is determined in accordance with the provisions of the Customs Tariff Act 1986.

In normal circumstances, the Customs value is determined as the price paid or payable.
- any overseas duties or taxes included in the price paid which have been rebated or refunded before the vehicle arrives in Fiji.
- an allowance for depreciation if the vehicle has been personally owned and used by the importer overseas for not less than 90 days prior to the arrival of the vehicle in Fiji.

Where importer supplies insufficient or unsatisfactory information, the FIRCA may determine a value employing one of the alternative methods provided in the Customs Tariff Act 1986. For example, an alternative method of valuation may be used when:
- the importer has purchased the vehicle overseas at an unrealistically low or token price
- the vehicle was acquired by the importer as a gift or prize
- the vehicle was constructed overseas by the importer
- the value of the vehicle has been altered significantly after the date of purchase, for example major restoration, modification or improvement
- use of the depreciation allowance results in an unrealistically high Customs value.
