Renewing registration

A renewal notice will be posted to you 4 weeks before your registration expires. The vehicle’s registered operator should renew registration before it expires so that the vehicle can legally be used on a road or road related area and is covered by compulsory third party (CTP) insurance. A fee may be charged for late renewal.

There are a number of payment options to renew your registration. After we receive your payment, we will send you a registration label and certificate in the mail. It may take at least 10 working days to receive your label and certificate—depending on how you paid and if you live in a remote area. Attach your new registration label within 21 days of the date that your registration would have expired.

If you pay your registration after the due date, attach your new label within 21 days of the date that you paid.

If you don't renew your registration

If you don't renew your registration, you will be fined for using it on a road or road related area, or parking it on a road.

If you are not covered by CTP insurance you may be held personally and financially liable in the event of a crash.

If you are not going to renew your registration you must:

  • remove the number plate/s
  • complete and lodge an application for cancellation.

The number plate/s must be surrendered if the plate/s are not a customised or personalised plate product. The registration label (sticker) should be removed and destroyed.
