Changes to rego labels


From 1 October 2014 you won’t get a registration label when you register your vehicle. This only applies to light vehicles, including:

  • cars

  • motorcycles

  • light trailers

  • light caravans

  • light buses

  • motorised wheelchairs.


Heavy vehicles (over 4.5t gross vehicle mass) and recreational boats will still need to display registration labels.


Do I still need to register my vehicle?

You still need to register your vehicle—driving an unregistered vehicle is an offence and you can get a fine. Transport inspectors and police officers can check that your car is registered through your number plate. Get more information about how to register your vehicle.

You will still get a registration renewal notice sent to you about 4 weeks before the expiry date to remind you to re-register your vehicle.


Checking if your vehicle is registered

You can check your registration’s expiry date online or by calling Transport and Main Roads on 13 23 80. You can also check the expiry date of a vehicle you are planning to drive.


Removing current registration labels

You need to display a registration label up until 30 September 2014—from 1 October 2014 you can remove the label. If you choose not to remove the registration label, you won’t get a fine.


Travelling interstate

You will need to display a registration label when driving in the other states and territories in Australia up until 1 October 2014. After that date, you can travel interstate without displaying a label.
