Although the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is only a fraction over 2,400 square kilometres, there were still over 270,000 vehicles on its roads in 2015.
The Road Transport Authority of ACT legally requires all vehicles in the state to have up-to-date registration. This requirement is in place to help ensure the safety of the wider community.
A free ACT rego check will tell you whether a car is registered or not, whether it’s been in a major accident and been deemed a write off.
A rego check also tells you the sale history of the car registered in the Australian Capital Territory. This can help raise the alarm to any safety issues, including those associated with major accidents.
A free registration check (rego check) can be done online to:
- Check whether a vehicle is registered in the ACT
- Check vehicle registration expiry date
- Vehicle inspection date (if needed)
What do I need?
You’ll need the vehicle’s number plate or VIN number to conduct a free rego check.

Why should I check my registration?
Just like the other states and territories throughout Australia, the responsibility to comply with this legal requirement rests with the driver of the vehicle.
With this in mind, we recommend that anyone responsible for a vehicle conducts a free rego check to ensure peace of mind and avoid the heavy penalties which can apply to drivers caught driving without valid registration.
Fees associated with registering a car in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) are comparatively lower to the large fines which drivers can receive if caught driving an unregistered vehicle.
