Renewal notices for light vehicles are issued for the same length as your last registration. If you transfer your vehicle registration to a new person, the next notice will default to 12 months.
If you choose to renew your registration for 6 months, you must pay your CTP insurance and renew registration no later than 21 days after the registration expiry date.
If you have a vehicle used for agricultural purposes or in over-snow situations you can apply for seasonal registration.
Short-term registration costs
Cars, trailers, motorcycles and other light vehicles
Use our rego calculator to:
calculate specific short-term rego costs for your vehicle by entering your number plate and VIN/chassis number, or
estimate the renewal cost for your general vehicle type by choosing the 'General enquiry' option under 'Registration renewal' in the calculator. You don't need specific registration details to calculate this estimate.
The surcharge is 10% of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) regulatory charge and the National Transport Comission (NTC) road user charge. See heavy vehicle registration charges for more details.
